Court Documents Show Bobby Shmurda Wasn’t Released From Jail Due To Drug Possession, Fighting + More

Bobby Shmurda was denied parole back in September and new court documents reveal why.

According to TMZ, board members denied the rapper’s release after referring to the fact that he’s had “multiple” violations in jail. It’s reported that he allegedly had a shank, fighting, and drug possession.

Transcripts reveal that Shmurda sees his case differently. He said he doesn’t have impulsive behavior anymore, considers others in his decision-making, and walks away from bad situations when they occur. After telling the parole board that he wants to resume his music career when he’s released and become involved in outreach programs with troubled youth, he also said that he now sees himself as a “leader” rather than a follower. He also wants to get a high school G.E.D. upon his release.

Bobby Shmurda will have to serve his entire seven-year sentence, which means he won’t be released until December 11, 2021 as reports previously stated.

We’re wishing the best for Bobby.
