Remy Ma Trial Goes to Jury

The fate of Remy Ma is now in the hands of the jury after the prosecution and defense wrapped up their cases on Monday and presented their closing arguments. The rapper’s attorney, Ivan Fisher, argued that while his client did shoot Makeda Barnes-Joseph in the abdomen on last July, it was not intentional. According to the Associated Press, Fisher explained that the gun Remy was holding as she and her former friend argued went off accidentally while the two tussled over missing money. “There is no other explanation for why Remy Smith would have chosen that unique moment in time to shoot her,” he reasoned. He also noted that Remy had reason to believe that Barnes-Joseph stole the $3000 in cash from her purse, because the victim herself admitted to reaching into the bag to retrieve the rapper’s cell phone without her permission. Assistant District Attorney Michael McIntosh disagreed with the defenses assertion that the whole incident was nothing more than an unfortunate accident. “Ms. Smith took an illegal .45-caliber automatic and loaded it with hollow-point bullets and got into Ms. Joseph’s car.” McIntosh also pointed out that, after the shooting, Remy did not call an ambulance, but rather jumped in her SUV and fled the scene. Jury deliberations are expected to begin tomorrow (March 25). Remy faces up to 25 years in prison if she is found guilty.

    Pool anyone?

    I say guilty of aggravated assault & illegal possession of a firearm without a license.

    Remy Ma gets 6-9 years, + 1-3 for the illegal weapon, + restitution of Ms. Barnes medical bills.

    No wonder why Fat Joe dropped her. That could have been him shot up. Sure, it would have been only a slight flesh wound, lodging between fat layers 1 & 2 but still.

    Can we just lock this transvestite looking drag queen RemyMAN up already???
    Dumb she-male is wasting my taxpayer $$$.
    Not to mention her music is fucking horrible, straight garbage, wack bitch anyways.
    She should have been at home with her fucking son, & not out trying to be a studio gangster running around with guns & shit!
    Maybe her poor son will have a better stable home with someone else.

    The question should really be:

    Will RemyMAN get sent to the men’s prison or the women’s prison ???

    Dumb she-male anyways!!!
    She better be thanking the lord everyday she didnt kill that chick?
    Who in the hell shoots theie childhood friend anyways, & then leaves them to die bleeding…..?

    RemyMAN deserves to be sent to prison for a long long time!

    U dont fuck around trying to take people’s lives like that!

  • joey get at me faggits

  • 100

    I see a lot of people goin on about it only being 3 G’s but its not about the money, its about the principle..(so i understand Remy)You took something of mine so you damn right imma see you about it. Now whether or not she should have shot her…that’s whateva to me , I could care less. Maybe a good ass whippen would have been good enough , but to each his or her own. Handle ya biz. If she get a stint in the bing, do ya time, dont bitch about it and get back on ya grind…100
