Gunna Denied Bond On Racketeering Charge And Will Remain In Fulton County Jail




Just like his bestie and musical counterpart, things are not looking good for Gunna as it relates to his potential release following his arrest. It was recently confirmed that Gunna was formally denied bond on the racketeering charge for which he was arrested—and as a result, he will remain in the custody of the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta.

In response to the denial of bond, the legal team representing Gunna (real name Sergio Kitchens) filed a new motion for his release that slammed the charges against him. The motion partially reads, “It is intensely problematic that the state relies on song lyrics as part of its allegations. These lyrics are an artist’s creative expression and not a literal recounting of facts and circumstances. Under the state’s theory, any artist with a song referencing violence could find herself the victim of a RICO indictment.”

The court document continued, advocating more reasons to release Gunna:

“The allegations in the indictment, so thin as to be transparent, support Mr. Kitchens’s motion for bond. There is no allegation that he committed any act of violence. There is no allegation that he ever sold any drugs. There is no allegation that he ever committed any act relating to obstruction of justice or interfering with the administration of justice. There is no allegation that he engaged in any conduct which suggests that he would be a flight risk, a danger to the community or a danger to any person.”

As we previously reported, Gunna surrendered to Atlanta authorities earlier this week after he was one of 28 people, including fellow rapper Young Thug, who were indicted on 56 counts. The majority of those counts stem from RICO (the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) and participation in criminal street gang activity.
