Remy Ma Found Guilty, Faces 25 Years Prisontime

by admin ·

Terror Squad cohort Remy Ma has been convicted of assault, weapons possession and coercion for shooting a woman in the abdomen in a dispute about money in New York.

Ma, whose real name is Remy Smith, faces up to 25 years in prison.

The rapper was cleared of charges of gang assault, witness tampering, witness intimidation and assault in a separate incident in which her associates are accused of beating up the boyfriend of a witness.

The 26 year-old was led handcuffed and weeping from the New York court today following the conviction.

Prosecutors said Remy Ma shot Makeda Barnes-Joseph in July because she’d thought she had taken $3,000 from her purse. Defense attorneys said the shooting was accidental.

LA Times Eats Crow For Fake Tupac Shakur Story

The Los Angeles Times apologized for using doctored documents last week in a story implicating Sean “Diddy” Combs and his associates in the 1994 assault on rapper Tupac Shakur.

Today the sound of rolling heads is pretty loud.

“The bottom line is that the documents we relied on should not have been used,” editor Russ Stanton said on the paper’s site. “We apologize both to our readers and to those referenced in the documents … and in the story.”
