Bone Thugs-n-Harmony's Stanley "Flesh-n-Bone" Howse has officially been released from jail today (June 2) after being arrested and placed behind bars on weapons charges last April.
The rapper was freed from a California jail Tuesday afternoon.
Stanley Howse, aka Flesh-n-Bone, was just released from a Los Angeles County jail after prosecutors decided to drop parole violation charges -- a case that kept him behind bars after he was arrested for gun and pot possession back in April. Flesh was cleared of the gun and drug charges a while ago, but remained behind bars until the parole issue got sorted out -- which finally happened this morning. (TMZ)
His felony gun charges were dropped in late April.
"The defense turned over some information, and we investigated and realized we were unable to proceed with the charges as filed, so the judge dismissed the case," said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles district attorney's office. (LA Times)
Flesh's attorney, Shepard Kopp, also expressed his reaction to the case's end.
"It vindicates what I've said from the start of this case, which is that Mr. Howse did not possess any contraband," he said. "When you haven't done anything wrong and you wind up in jail it's a pretty traumatic event. There's still a parole hold, and we hope to get that resolved within the next week." (Statement)
He was originally arrested in California on gun charges.
Flesh-n-Bone was arrested in Santa Clarita, Calif. for gun possession. Police say they discovered a gun in Flesh-n-Bone's car, real name Stanley Howse, and took him into custody for gun possession. According to sheriff's information, he is being held without bail and is currently still in the slammer. Howse is due in court on Monday, April 6. (KHTS News)
