Judge Sets Trial Date in Remy Ma Case

A Manhattan judge on Thursday (January 31) set a tentative date of February 25 for the start of Remy Ma’s impending trial on charges of assault and witness tampering according to a report from website Remy stands accused of shooting her friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph on July 14 during an argument over missing money. She was initially charged with attempted murder, but prosecutors reduced the charge when they discovered that the weapon fired accidentally. She was later indicted on witness tampering charge after she allegedly ordered a group of men to assault the boyfriend of a potential witness. In December, Barnes-Joseph filed a $10 million dollar lawsuit against the Bronx-born rapper and several of her record labels, claiming that the companies encouraged her criminal behavior to further her career. The suit was later amended and the victim is now seeking $80 million in damages.
