Gun Charges Dropped Against Sticky Fingaz

sticky.jpgGun charges against former Onyx frontman Sticky Fingaz were dropped yesterday, according to a New York Daily News report. The rapper-turned-TV star caught a weapons possession charge back in October of 2005 when a maid at the Flatotel hotel in Manhattan found a 9mm pistol in the room he had just checked out of. Sticky, whose real name is Kirk Jones, turned himself in shortly thereafter and was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm. The charges were dropped because the prosecutors could not prove that the weapon was in fact his. The News quoted his attorney, Joesph Tacopina, as saying, “Cleary [the Manhattan District Attorney’s office] did the right thing, and there was a just result because that wasn’t his gun.”

    lol, Sticky Fingaz is a fall off, sell out..They probably had him admit it was his gun so they could let him off for suspicion of it being in his posession. All that it takes is a good lawyer and some flow..Pathetic really..Oh yea, and word is Cassidy snitched?!
