Boosie Badazz recently shared his opinion on Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis offering YFN Lucci a plea deal. Earlier today, it was revealed that the rapper has chosen to turn down the deal. This means that he’s now headed to trial to fight the RICO charges. The deal would see Lucci serve 17 years behind bars if he had accepted. He would have had to plead guilty to felony murder, racketeering, aggravated assault, and violation of the street gang terrorism and prevention act.
On Instagram Live, Boosie claims that he knows Lucci doesn’t deserve the charges he’s been hit with. He explains that Lucci “goes home every night to his family,” saying that he’s “doing none of that sh*t [that he’s accused of].” Boosie also says, “it’s a bad RICO, dog.” He goes on to question statements made by a witness, claiming that they sound as though they’ve been paid.
Boosie Says Witness Sounds “Paid”
Lucci’s attorneys, Drew Findling and Gabe Banks, told TMZ that they believe the plea deal offered was “absurd.” They also claimed the DA is prioritizing “newer, high-profile cases that have completely monopolized the Court’s resources” over Lucci’s case. The attorneys noted the DA’s “utter inability to prosecute complex cases.” Lucci has denied his charges, and now he plans to fight them. His attorneys say, “Despite the obstacles consistently placed in the way of Mr. Bennett’s constitutional right to a speedy and fair trial, we continue to be ready and prepared to defend these false allegations.”
Despite speculation that he may choose to do so, Lucci refused to testify against Young Thug amid his own RICO charges in March. Earlier this week, it was reported that Young Thug, Gunna, and Lil Baby were added to the witness list in the YFN RICO trial. Gunna has faced a massive amount of public backlash following his decision to accept a plea deal in the YSL RICO trial. Since his release from prison, he’s been dealing with rampant accusations that he “snitched” on Young Thug.
