Remy Ma Goes to Court, No Indictment Yet
Remy Ma appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday (August 14) to find out if she has been indicted on charges of attempted murder, assault and weapons possession. According to the New York Daily News, the Bronx rapper was informed that her case has not yet been heard by a grand jury, and she will remain free on $250,000 bail until her next court date in November. The former first lady of Terror Squad picked up the charges after her friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph claimed the rapper shot her during an argument over money outside a Manhattan night spot on July 14. Remy and her attorney, Ivan Fisher, have publicly denied any wrongdoing on her part. “No view of the events that has surfaced publicly is accurate,” Fisher said yesterday. “I suspect that the district attorney’s getting conflicting views of the events from various witnesses” and doesn’t want to go before a grand jury until he’s sure of what happened.” Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Michael McIntosh did not comment on why the investigation is taking so long. Lauren Raysor, attorney for the victim, said that Barnes-Joseph’s family was disappointed in the lack of progress in the case. Her client is said to be home recuperating from her injuries.
