Bobby Shmurda might be getting a big break in his prison sentence -- the rapper could be eligible for parole in 2020, just two years away.
TMZ is reporting that Shmurda has a parole hearing scheduled for August 2020, and could be eligible to walk out of prison as early as December of that year.
Shmurda is serving a seven year sentence (that began in 2016) at Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York. Based on his prison sentence, Shmurda would have had to wait until 2022 for freedom... but best case scenario could give him a few extra years outside if all goes well.
He was originally arrested back in 2014 along with multiple members of his GS9 crew.
Police discovered 21 weapons. Bobby was arrested on charges of:
- Reckless endangerment
- Weapons possession
When he later appeared in court, he was given even more charges, including:
- Additional conspiracy in the second degree
- Three counts of conspiracy in the third degree
- Reckless endangerment in the second degree
- Two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree
- One count of criminal possession of drug paraphernalia
If he is able to keep a clean slate for the next two years or so, Shmurda could be back in the music game going into 2021. But keep screwing up and that won't even matter!
Shmurda's racked up 11 violations while behind bars, including drug possession, fighting and sneaking in a shank -- and good behavior weighs heavily with the parole board.
