According to TMZ, the reasons why Bobby Shmurda was denied parole in September have been revealed via court documents. The parole board made notes of “multiple” offenses in jail, including, allegedly possessing a shank, drug possession, and fighting.
Transcripts of Shmurda however, reveal the rapper making a case for his release. He denies having any impulsive behavior anymore, he is mindful of others when making decisions and walks away from negative situations as they arise. Shmurda expressed to the parole board of his desire to return to his music career, as well as his desire to involve himself in troubled youth outreach programs. That in addition to his change in perception of himself considering himself more of a “leader than a follower. Shmurda also expressed a desire to get his high school G.E.D. upon his release.
Sadly for him, the courts don’t see him as being fit for the outside world as of yet. He will need to serve the entirety of his 7 year sentence meaning his release won’t be until December 11, 2020.
The official statement from the NY State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision released in a statement to Complex:
“Following his Sept. 15, 2020 interview with the Board of Parole, Ackquille Pollard was denied release and given a hold until the maximum expiration of his sentence on December 11, 2021,”
