Young Thug tries his chances again with bond and his lawyers says his health is “languishing.”
As reported on 11Alive, the motion for bond was filed on April 24. Thug’s attorney, Brian Steel says his client isn’t able to stay healthy. Steel says Thugger doesn’t have access to a variety of healthy food, fresh air or sunlight. He also says Thug’s ability to exercise is limited because of the small cell.
Steel also claims Thug is “sleep deprived, “because he only receives five hours of sleep each night, and, on court days, must wake up between 3 and 4 a.m.”
In the motion, Steel said, “conditions can be imposed which permit bond to be set." A judge hasn’t made a ruling as of yet.
Last year, Thug, Gunna, and dozens of YSL members were hit with a 56-count gang and racketeering indictment. RS also notes that Young Thug, “is accused of engineering the murder of Donovan ‘Peanut’ Thomas in a drive-by shooting in 2015, which precipitated months of near-continuous violence between the accused Young Slime Life street gang and its rivals, YFN.” Thug is accused of being the “ringleader” of a gang.
Gunna struck a plea deal and was released, along with a few other members. However, Thug remains behind bars, awaiting trial. It was set to begin in January but had a few delays.
