New developments have emerged regarding YoungBoy never broke againthe federal gun case.
According to documents obtained by XXL On Wednesday June 9, lawyers for the Louisiana rapper, born Kentrell Gaulden, filed a pre-trial motion on Monday June 7 for their client to be released pending trial for his arrest on September 29, 2020. YoungBoy was taken into custody on accusations of felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm not listed in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Registry.
Elsewhere in the documents, YoungBoy’s legal team says they, along with their client, were caught off guard by the FBI “inexplicable tactical decision” to arrest rapper. The legal team notes that with respect to the warrant issued against NBA YoungBoy on March 10 and executed on March 22, resulting in the rapper’s arrest after a brief police chase in Los Angeles, they were not aware of any further allegation against YoungBoy aside from previous state-level offenses for which he was already on bail.
Further, lawyers allege that the federal government called the NBA case “Never Free Again”, which the legal team sees as a “clear attack on the accused’s ‘Never Broke Again’ mark.” , according to documents filed by the court. The documents also accuse the FBI sector in Baton Rouge, Louisiana of choosing to contact federal agents in LA to arrange for YoungBoy’s arrest instead of contacting his lawyers and allowing the rapper to voluntarily surrender to authorities. .
In another document obtained by XXL This afternoon from the Federal Bureau of Investigation Digital Evidence Laboratory, the legal agency also cited the investigation into the rapper’s arrest as “Operation Never Free Again”.
Ultimately, YoungBoy’s attorneys demand that their client be turned over to the custody of a private security team retained by the High rapper and placed under house arrest with electronic surveillance.
YoungBoy’s legal case stems from his arrest last September after the police were called to a vacant lot where he was shooting a music video. According to authorities, police arrived at the scene in response to a call for arms raised during the filming of the video. YoungBoy and 15 other men were arrested. After searching the scene, police discovered 14 guns, three grams of marijuana, a dose of hydrocodone in a transparent bag and digital scales. YoungBoy Never Broke Again was released days after his arrest on September 29, 2020.
Last month the 21 year old rapper wrote an open letter to his fans, asking them to let him serve his prison term in peace.
“I’m not trying to make you feel sorry for me. I’m just asking for one thing: that you let me suffer in peace,” he wrote. “Tell MS WENDY WILLIAM that I say she has a good soul and that she is a beautiful woman. I can see that this threw up all the bad comments that were addressed to her. Tell her to count her blessings ( STAY IN A GOOD SPIRIT) Regards Kentrell. “
XXL has contacted a representative of YoungBoy Never Broke Again and their legal team for comment.
