TSR EXCLUSIVE DETAILS: Although NBA YoungBoy is not currently in federal custody, his fortunes remain in balance as a new charge from California threatens his independence.
Today, a federal judge has ruled that Youngboy will not have to stay behind bars awaiting his trial in Baton Rouge on a weapons charge, but will remain in a 24-house state in Utah after posting a 1.5 1.5 million property bond. Or $ 500,000 in cash, according to the Advocate.
An attorney in Yangby told the publication that he must appear before a Los Angeles judge next week on a charge of possession of a firearm and be released on bond there before starting his house arrest in Utah for Louisiana charges. .
According to a federal complaint filed by The Shed Room in late August, when NBA Youngboy was stopped by police in LA, he had a .45 ACP caliber pistol and ammunition. The charging document states, “Abadi Golden possessed such firearms and ammunition that he had previously been convicted of a felony punishable by more than one year in prison, such as, assault with a firearm,” the charging document states.
Youngboy’s attorney, Andre Belanger, said he expects prosecutors to fight for NBA Youngboy by locking up, but Belanger said he is “cautiously optimistic” that it will play out for his client as early as Friday.
“We are grateful for Mr Golden’s release and know he will abide by the bail conditions set by the court,” Belanger told The Advocate.
Federal prosecutors asked the judge to suspend his Friday verdict, but Belanger said the judge denied the request.
NBA YoungBoy has been in federal custody since March 22 when agents arrested him in California and returned him to Louisiana on a federal warrant.
He was convicted by a federal grand jury in Baton Rouge of possessing a firearm as a criminal and of possessing a firearm that was not registered with him in the federal database.
We will keep you posted on any updates in his case.
