New York rapper Bobby Shmurda is expected to receive a conditional release from prison next month, according to reports.
Both Hot97 and The Shade Room have reported that New York state correctional records confirm that a conditional release for Bobby – who was initially due for release in December of this year – has been set for February 23rd. This means that he will likely be monitored – similarly to parole – until his maximum prison sentence has been reached.
Shmurda has been behind bars since 2014 after being arrested on conspiracy and weapons possession charges. After initially pleading not guilty, the rapper entered a plea deal in 2016 and was sentenced to seven years in prison for 4th degree conspiracy and 2nd degree criminal weapons possession.
News of the rapper’s reported conditional release comes after he was denied parole back in September.
