Gunna and Young Thug Arrest & Charges Explained

Renowned rapper Gunna has turned himself into the authorities and been arrested and booked into Fulton County Jail after he was named as a defendant in a 56-count RICO indictment this week.

The arrest comes two days after he and fellow rapper Young Thug were charged through the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). Young Thug was taken into custody on Monday, May 9th.

Gunna and Young Thug’s charges stem from a 56-count indictment that involves other members of Young Thug’s collective and record label YSL.

Gunna is accused of conspiring to violate the RICO Act, while Young Thug also faces charges of “participation in street gang activity and conspiring to violate” the same act.

Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, has denied all charges.

Thug’s felony charges include Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute; Possession Of Sawed-Off Shotgun, Sawed-Off Rifle, Machine Gun, dangerous Weapon, Or Silencer; and three separate charges of Unlawful For Person Employed By/Associated With Criminal Street Gang To Conduct/Participate In Criminal Activity.

Williams’ defense attorney, Brian Steel, told reporters: “I’ll tell you the response to any allegation; Mr Williams committed no crime whatsoever and we will fight to my last drop of blood to clear him.”

However, on Wednesday (May 11), both Young Thug and Gunna’s requests for bond were rejected during their hearings before a judge.
