Bobby Shmurda Denied Bail For The Seventh Time

If convicted, Shmurda could face up to 25 years in jail.

The crazy case of Bobby Shmurda grows more rage-inducing by the day. The rapper was denied bail for the seventh time for an arrest made over a year ago. In December of 2014, Shmurda along with 15 others were charged for a bundle of charges, including conspiracy to commit murder, weapons possession, and reckless endangerment as part of a 69-count indictment that included his brother Javese and other label mates. Shmurda has pled not guilty; his bail is set at $2 million.

Shmurda has attempted to have his bail adjusted numerous times, with lawyers arguing that his estimated worth of $20 million is, in reality, much closer to $500,000. Questions about the credibility of the officers involved in the arrest have been raised. According to TMZ, Shmurda's family is, understandably, "frustrated."

Although there are surely plenty of gray areas in this case, what seems patently clear is that the justice system is attempting to make an example of Shmurda. His family and lawyers plan on continuing to have the bail adjusted. If he is convicted, Shmurda will face up to 25 years in jail. He is scheduled to appear in court again next month.
