Young Thug denied bond in RICO case

Reading now: 220

Young Thug was denied bond at a hearing on Wednesday following a Monday indictment that charged him — as well as Gunna and 26 other alleged members of the Young Slime Life crew — with felony conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

The celebrated Atlanta rapper, whose legal name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, faces an additional felony charge of participation in criminal street gang activity within the indictment and was hit with seven new felony charges outside the indictment after a raid on his home during his Monday arrest.

At the Wednesday hearing, held virtually under the jurisdiction of Fulton County Magistrate Court, Judge Robert Wolf clarified that he could only rule on bond in the case of the seven new felony charges, as the initial indictment is under the purview of Fulton County Superior Court.

The state's prosecutor recommended that Williams be denied bond, arguing that he poses a flight risk due to his considerable resources.
