YNW Melly’s cellmate accused the rapper of having pipe bombs and shanks in his jail cell.
According to court documents obtained by AllHipHop, the rapper’s attorneys filed a motion to lift restrictions on his visitations at the Broward County jail. His attorneys say the allegations against him are false.
“On or around late March 2022, another inmate filed a grievance alleging that Mr. Demons was in possession of shanks and pipe bombs,” the documents read. “In response correction personnel conducted a search of the entire dorm, at which time Mr. Demons was found with one (1) writing utensil and potato chips. However, another inmate on the dorm was found in possession of shanks, prescription drugs and other contraband.”
Melly was hit with restrictions even though the illicit items did not belong to him.
“Despite Mr. Demons not having any relationship with this inmate, Mr. Demons and his attorneys have been restricted from having customary visits due to the discovery of contraband in the possession of the third-party inmate,” his legal team added. “Over five (5)months have passed, which is more than enough time for the facility housing Mr. Demons to make a determination regarding the allegations set forth in the grievance.”
Melly is currently awaiting trial for double homicide. His attorneys say the restrictions are impeding his ability to prepare properly for the trial and his entire legal team cannot all fit into the designated visitation room.
