TSR EXCLUSIVE DETAILS: Although NBA Youngboy is not currently in federal custody, his fate remains unbalanced as a new charge outside of California threatens his independence.
Today, a federal judge ruled that Youngboy would not have to stay behind bars because he was awaiting trial at Baton Rouge on a weapons charge, but would have a choice after posting a ির 2.5 million property bond in Utah for him. Or $ 500,000 in cash, according to the Advocate.
A lawyer in Yangby told the publication that Louisiana would have to appear before a Los Angeles judge before being placed under house arrest in Utah for the charges, where she would be released on bail. .
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 accused Golden had such firearms and ammunition, knowing that he had previously been convicted of a felony, punishable by more than one year in prison, such as an assault with a firearm,” the charging document said.
Youngboy’s attorney, Andre Belanger, said he expects prosecutors to fight to keep NBA Youngboy in custody, but Belanger said he was “cautiously optimistic” that it would work for his client as early as Friday.
“We are grateful for Mr. Golden’s release and know that he will abide by the bail conditions imposed by the court,” Belanger told the Advocate.
The federal prosecutor asked the judge to stay the verdict on Friday, but Belanger said the judge rejected 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.
Less than two weeks ago, a federal grand jury in Baton Rouge charged him with possession of a firearm as a criminal and with a firearm that was not registered in a federal database.
