Lil Woody, a former associate of Young Thug, admitted under oath that he had lied to police during his testimony, revealing that he had fabricated stories to satisfy prosecutors. He confessed that during his police interviews dating back to 2015, he consistently provided false information, stating, “Every time they grabbed me, I had a different story for them.” Woody acknowledged his lack of truthfulness, admitting, “I was not truthful, I was saying whatever they wanted me to say… I was making up stories.”

Despite his confession, Lil Woody faced contempt charges after he refused to testify against Young Thug during the trial. He invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, even refusing to answer basic questions. This led Judge Ural Glanville to hold him in willful contempt of court until Monday, June 10th. Young Thug’s attorney, Brian Steel, filed a motion for a mistrial following this incident, adding another layer of complexity to the already controversial case.

Meanwhile, Young Thug’s lawyer, Brian Steel, found himself in legal trouble after confronting Judge Ural Glanville about a private meeting involving prosecutors and a witness. Initially sentenced to serve 10 weekends in jail for contempt, Steel’s bond was granted pending appeal, allowing him to avoid immediate incarceration. His attorney expressed relief, stating, “We are thrilled that Brian will be home with his family for Father’s Day this weekend.” However, Steel’s refusal to disclose his information led to his arrest, highlighting a significant clash between defense and judiciary during the trial.

The ongoing legal drama surrounding the YSL RICO trial continues to capture public attention, with daily headlines marking each twist and turn. Despite the challenges faced by both Lil Woody and Brian Steel, the trial persists, drawing focus not only on the legal proceedings but also on the broader implications and controversies surrounding the case.
