Young Thug’s Attorney Files For RICO Dismissal

Young Thug’s legal team filed a motion requesting the dismissal of his RICO case. The rapper’s attorneys accused the prosecution of misconduct.

Thugger’s legal team says the District Attorney’s Office of Fulton County “abused its authority by utilizing a sham Grand Jury Subpoena” to obtain information regarding the rapper’s alleged involvement in a murder.

They claim a false subpoena was submitted to Hertz Corporation to obtain records connecting the Young Slime Life artist to the rental of a vehicle used in the 2015 murder of Donavan “Big Nut” Thomas.

Young Thug, Gunna, and 26 others were arrested as part of a 56-count RICO indictment against YSL back in May. Allegations against YSL include murder, assault, and other threats of violence. Both rappers deny the claims.

Last week, Akon weighed in on the charges. “It’s like most of it is being done to impress they peers,” Akon said. “Cuz, I know most of them! They the most humble, good hearted good people. But when you listen to the music, you would think they were serial killers.”
