Bobby Shmurda Pleads Guilty In Gang Consipracy Case, Will Serve Seven Years

Bobby Shmurda (real name: Ackquille Jean Pollard) just plead guilty to a murder conspiracy case. 

The rapper and two co-defendants, Chad "Rowdy Rebel" Marshall and Nicholas McCoy, have accepted a plea deal from the prosecution in a New York State Supreme Court hearing today (Sept. 9), agreeing to serve seven years in prison rather than risk trial. 

It has been almost 21 months since Shmurda and several others were arrested at Manhattan's Quad Studios on the night of Dec. 17, 2014.

Shmurda was originally charged with conspiracy to commit murder and several weapons and drug charges associated with gangs. 

According to the deal, Shmurda pled to conspiracy to possess weapons and possession of a weapon. The other charges were dismissed, and he'll get 7 years in prison and 5 years probation.
The 22-year-old rapper has been behind bars for 20 months and according to TMZ, that will count towards his jail sentence. 

Shmurda's rap career was just starting around the time of his arrest. Remember, he released the popular hit single "Hot Boy" in the summer of 2014. Now, it looks like his career may be over before even really taking off.
