A Fulton County superior court judge denied bond for Atlanta rapper #YFNLucci in a case involving a death and alleged gang association.
Lucci surrendered to police on May 10 on a gang-related RICO indictment, involving allegations of felony murder and more.
“My client is, your honor, an incredibly successful artist that is very well known nationally and even internationally,” Lucci’s attorney Drew Findling told Judge Thomas Cox during a bond hearing Tuesday.
“The defendant will remain in a no-bond status at this time. Additionally, this court revokes any bonds previously issued in this case,” Cox said.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis told Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne that her prosecutors are using a YouTube music video that Lucci appeared in, in the racketeering case against him and 11 others.
“We think it sends of very strong message to the public that no matter who you are, you have to follow the law and the rules, and you will be evaluated the same,” Willis said.
