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.

  • richmoncali

    Nigga must be broke he putting up houses where the cash at Ja lol them niggas been in the game years and is broke


      you must be stupid…that’s what people do, they’re coming back to court, so it doesn’t matter! In this situation, you’d prefer to put up non-liquid assets as opposed to liquid (cash). By posting a cash bond, you loose money due to opportunity costs. His house is still appreciating while they hold the lein.

      Be 4 real people, if you have never done a crime, or posted a bond, you have no opinion on this subject!

  • kk twins

    if we were talking about someone like Donald Trump the judge would never make a comment about where the bail money is coming from. Is that legal anyway?

  • Daphine

    How do you tell somebody they can’t post bail for someone?

    • 100 percent

      exactly. Same ole bullshit….im sure jah and his friends are furious. that judge is getting away with abuse of power. The judge should know people’s LIVES are way to important, to fcuk over with his prejudices, but he doesn’t.

    Ja is a weak bitch,but I do think its bullshit to say he cant post bond for his boys…I dont feel bad for any of these rappers who get caught with guns.they are rich,they can afford armed security,its not like being on the streets were u need to be strapped and watch out for urself,and its not like hes out on the streets anyway,he up in rich spots,so there is no excuse,I see why niggas like us need to carry them on the streets,but thats not his life anymore(and hes a bitch)

    Hip Hop police have nothing better to do than be cowards and follow these rappers. I mean they pulled him over in his “Maybach”! How the f do you pull over a “Mayback” when you don’t even drive the sh#$. You have a damn driver. I’m pretty sure the air filtering in that car is adequate enough that the weed smeill is not coming out the car. I mean common! Get a life NYPD! How about catching a murderer or a thief! We know ya make no loot but hot damn stop the hate!

  • dthag
