Judge Doesn’t Want Ja-Rule Posting Bail for Friends

A New York State Supreme Court judge expressed concerns on Wednesday (February 27) about Ja-Rule putting up thousands of dollars in bail money for two co-defendants in his gun possession case. According to the Associated Press, Justice Micki Scherer feels that the rapper has “put himself in the position of perhaps controlling the outcome of the case. I think the potential for it is a big problem.” The case stems from a July 22 arrest following a Lil Wayne concert at the Beacon Theater in Manhattan. The NYPD stopped Ja’s Maybach on West End Avenue and 78th Street and searched the car after smelling marijuana. The rapper and his two companions, Mohamed Gamal and Dennis Cherry, were taken into custody after the officers uncovered a .40 caliber handgun. Weezy was also arrested on similar charges about an hour later. Ja later put up his Saddle River, NJ mansion as collateral for their combined bail of $320,000. The rapper’s attorney, Stacey Richman, told the court that the defense will now come up with separate bail packages for the other two men. Scherer is expected to rule next month on the prosecutor’s request for DNA samples from the defendants. Although nobody in the car claimed the handgun, police reportedly found DNA evidence on the weapon.
