Turk Allowed to Withdraw Guilty Plea in Attempted Murder Case

An appeals court judge has ruled that incarcerated Hot Boys member Turk should be allowed to withdraw his guilty plea in the 2004 shooting of a narcotics officer. The rapper was sentenced to 12 years in prison as a result of the plea. According to The Commercial Appeal, Tennessee’s Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that the plea was not knowingly, voluntarily and understandingly entered. In 2006, Turk entered an Alford plea, which means that he did not admit guilt, but rather acknowledged that the existing evidence could possibly lead to a conventional conviction. The New Orleans native stood accused of shooting SWAT team deputy Chris Harris during a raid. He also plead guilty to a federal charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm, which resulted in a separate 10-year sentence. Turk’s attorney had sought to have the rapper serve his sentence in a federal prison, concurrent with the firearms conviction. The Federal Bureau of Prisons denied the request, and so Turk petitioned to withdraw the guilty pleas in state court. The petition was originally denied, but the Appeals court has now granted the request.

    ALL OF YOU seem to be missing the point in all of this, not just ill G. ill G was actually right, Turk DID KNOW and understand his guilty plea when he submitted it. How can a grown man not understand he is pleading guilty. Like the story says, he withdrew his guilty plea AFTER the feds denied him entry into a federal prison. He only withdrew the plea because he couldnt get in. Anybody who has ever been faced with a decent bid (7 yrs. or betta) automatically knows you DO NOT want to be in a state prison. You cant do Sh*T. Its the closet thing to jail. In the feds they be playing x-box, all day rec, going to college, if you married you can get laid, talking on cell phones, visits all through the week all night, boxing matches, eating pizza, some even sell street clothes like airforce 1′s and roca-wear.

    hence the reason he withdrew the plea. Smart man, the states trying to F’ him.

  • izzo

    he withdrew his plea because he rather be in a fed prison than a state prison. None of you know the system.

    @ izzo

    dude u called it out exactly for what it was. I usually just read the comments just to laugh at the dumb shit that the internet thugs say/think. but its very refreshing to see that when we talkin bout a real issue that someone does make a damn good argument backed by facts from the story.

    real recognize real, and a lot of u niggaz can’t be seen. real talk.
