Judge in Young Thug and Gunna’s RICO case sets trial date for January 2023
The NME reports
The prosecution’s request to delay the defendants’ trial to March has been denied: “They deserve to have a right to go to trial”
The trial of Young Thug, Gunna and 26 other defendants is set to begin in January, 2023, after the judge in the case blocked a request for the trial to be delayed until March.
The two rappers were among those charged in a sweeping gang indictment earlier this year, with prosecutors alleging the two high-profile defendants are involved in a crime syndicate in Atlanta.
Young Thug and Gunna were charged with conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) with their label, YSL Records, alleged to be the centrepiece of a gang.
