Tony Yayo’s Co-Defendant Admitted to Assaulting Henchmen’s Son Months Ago
Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher, a G-Unit associate and Tony Yayo’s co-defendant in his pending assault case, reportedly admitted to striking Jimmy Henchmen’s 14-year old son several months ago. According to MTV News, this revelation came to light during a hearing in Manhattan Criminal Court yesterday (January 10). “The DA disclosed today that despite constitutional protections, members of New York’s infamous hip-hop squad interviewed [Fletcher] after his arrest, and he said that Yayo was not the person who hit the boy,” Yayo’s lawyer Scott Leemon said. “Fletcher said he was the one who slapped the boy, but the DA didn’t learn about it until last week.” Leemon believes the new information exonerates his client, particularly since Fletcher stated that Yayo pulled him off the boy and attempted to restrain him. Fletcher’s lawyer, Robert Macedonio, told the Associated Press that while the statement doesn’t help his client, it was obtained illegally. Macedonio contends that police questioned Fletcher without his attorney present, violating his constitutional rights. Leemon says that he will file a motion to dismiss the charges against Yayo. Judge Neil E. Ross has set a tentative trial date of March 31.
