Details of the rapper's appeal rejection hit the Internet yesterday evening.
New York's top court has upheld the conviction of rapper Remy Ma in the shooting of a friend in 2007. In a ruling Thursday, the Court of Appeals rejected arguments that a judge didn't properly inform jurors before they rendered a guilty verdict. The rapper's real name is Remy Smith. She's serving eight years in prison for criminal possession of a weapon and two counts of assault stemming from the struggle in which a friend was shot. Smith had accused the friend of stealing $3,000 from her pocketbook. (My Fox News)
Last year, Papoose spoke on Remy's possible early release.
"I can't speak about it in detail due to legal reasons, but we just recently got some great news concerning her second appeal" Papoose revealed in an interview. "Let's just say that she's blessed. I highly doubt she will have to serve the full time. If justice is served, then she will come home now. My plan is to see her walk out of that hellhole and get a breath of fresh air so we can enjoy life." (VIBE)
In early 2010, Remy said she hoped to be released from jail by the summer.
"Hopefully I can be home soon, like, before the summer," Remy told radio personality Jenny Boom Boom regarding her appeal. "If none of my appeals work and I had to do the most, probably another three years, a little bit over three years. I have eight [years], but you don't do the whole eight, you have to do about six and I've already done two." ("Jenny Boom Boom TV")
