#Pooh Shiesty is looking to have his armed robbery case resolved as soon as possible. According to court documents viewed by #Rolling Stone on Monday (October 4), the “Back In Blood” rapper has withdrawn his request to delay the federal trial.
After previously arguing for a delay until at least December 6 to build a defense that the New 1017 Records rapper wasn’t part of a “drug-trafficking conspiracy,” Pooh Shiesty is ready to go forward with the case under the advice of his legal team.
“[It’s] in their best interest to proceed to trial [in three weeks] even in light of the voluminous discovery,” his attorneys argued. The Memphis native is being hit with charges for discharging a firearm during a violent crime, conspiracy and robbery under a law regulating commerce. The charges stem from a 2020 armed robbery in Bay Harbor Islands, Florida.
#Shiesty and two friends — Bobby Brown and Jayden Darosa — arranged a meet-up to purchase marijuana and high-end sneakers in October 2020. During the deal gone bad, which was caught on camera, Pooh Shiesty and Brown allegedly shot two men in the butt and hip.
