Remy Ma Found Guilty!
Remy Ma and her lawyer Ivan Fisher walked into Manhattan's Criminal Court today (March 27th) with optimistic thoughts. To their surprise, the jury ruled Remy out with a GUILTY verdict. Rem and her attorney was shocked as shit when she was found guilty. She put her head on the desk, while the victim Makeda Barnes Joseph, her mother and other supporter cried happy tears. Remy Ma was handcuffed and escorted out of the court room. A police officer ran to her aid as they heard Remy screaming "Oh My God". Remy's brother was highly upset and started spazzin out about how everyone lied on Rem to the police and on the stand. Remy's lawyer put a request in to Judge Rena K. Uvillier to allow Rem her time at home before sentencing, but the judge denied it.
Remy stood trial for shooting former friend Barnes-Joseph in New York City's Meatpacking district, last July. The incident occurred after Remy discovered $3,000 missing from her purse and accused the plaintiff of stealing the money.
Remy faces up to 25 years in prison. A sentence date has not yet been determined.
Here are my thoughts: Had I been in Remy's shoes, I don't think I would've shot my friend. I may have fucked dat bitch up real bad, but I didn't think shooting her was necessary especially if she was uncertain if Makeda actually stole the money. Now she's facing serious time. I do feel kind of bad for her because of the simple fact that she left her crib today thinking shit was sweet and didn't get to say goodbye to her 8 year old son. Now that's awful. But this is a lesson to be learned, that it doesn't matter how much money you have, how famous or popular you are, it doesn't even matter who the judge or the jurors are. If God says its a wrap for you....... THEN ITS A WRAP FOR YOU. Its all in his hands. SC is keeping Remy Ma in our prayers and our heart especially goes out to her little boy.
