Judge Unfreezes a Portion of Shyne’s Assets

shyne.jpgA judge in a Brooklyn court today unfroze $100,000 of incarcerated rapper Shyne’s assets. Shyne, who has been serving a ten-year sentence since 1999 for his role in a Club New York shooting, had his assets frozen in November 2004 under the Son of Sam law, which prevents criminals from profiting from a crime. Despite the fact that his earnings were from his recording career and not directly related to his crime, for the last 18 months Shyne has not had any access to his money, preventing him from supporting his mother and retaining legal counsel. Shyne’s previous lawyers were also ordered to turn over all case files to new attorney Oscar Michelen.

    Justice is finally starting to see that Shyne is the truth, and he should not be denied.

    I’m not a big fan of his music. But in reading and hearing his interviews especially the ones since he has been locked up I have became a fan of him as a person. I’m glad that he and his family has received some peace of mind.

  • Jamal

    I have nothing but respect for Shyne. To go through what he has went through over the past seven years and still be standing strong… That’s real G $hit right there. My prayers are with him and his family. The streets need you Po, hang in there.

    Shyne is a straight G – 50 is a punk ass bitch wanna b thug P Diddy is a BITCH just like 50 and ALL G Unit. 50 got good beats n songs but he is a fraud and aint shit he says is true in his raps. Read Shyne real life and 50′s (Wiki) you dumb fucks who think im wrong n got balls to say Shyne b a bitch you dont even know the story you fags! 50 did 6 months for small poss amount. Shyne did 10 for shit. Diddy is a BITCH id like Shyne 2 show them Wanna B G’s what it means to b a THUG. Diddy paid Shyne lawyer so he had Shynes lawyer b in favor of Diddy you known knowing CLOWNS ASS BITCHES. Dont talk bout shit like you know it like i do!
