Tru Life’s Lawyer Speaks On Murder Rap

Since being arrested last month on attempted murder charges, fans have yet to hear from  Tru Life. recently reached out to his attorney to find out how the former Roc La Familia rapper is holding up and to gain more insight into the case.

As previously reported Tru, born Roberto Guzman Rosado, was arrested on second degree murder and gang related charges on June 22, for allegedly fatally stabbing a man and leaving another man in critical condition. Tru’s brother Marcus Rosado, was also picked up for the supposed incident that authorities believe occurred on June 15 in a Midtown Manhattan lobby, as part of an ongoing dispute between both parties.

“At this point [Tru Life’s] still incarcerated and he’s awaiting arraignment in Supreme Court,” Tru’s lawyer, Alan Abramson, told XXL, after declining to answer how his client’s spirits are behind bars.

Although Tru has already entered a not guilty plea, Abramson explained to XXL that the rapper has not officially been charged for the crime. “This is just the initial court appearance so we can find out exactly what he’s being charged with.”

Once charged, Abramson is completely confident that his client will be cleared of any wrongdoing. “He is an extraordinarily talented young artist and we believe that he will be vindicated of any charge they throw against him.”

According to Abramson, Tru is scheduled to appear in Manhattan Supreme Court on July 27. –Jesse Gissen

    Don’t they have to charge you in 72 hours? And what happened to all this n*gga’s chips? How is he still in jail damn near a month later? There is a fail in here somewhere.

      he, hasnt been formally charge which means he hasnt been indicted yet,his case will go b4 a grand jury and they will decide whether to indict or formally charge him w/ the crime, they may not indict him for ex: due to lack of evidence. theres a difference between being charged and indicted

    • Big Push

      When it is a felony charge, especially for a fatal stabbing, different laws and regulations apply. With it being a violent felony Tru can be held until there is evidence to build a case. When you are a violent offender you pretty much stay in jail until you appear for your arraignment which can be as much as 3 months away. Considering Tru doesn’t have long money he probably can’t afford a high price lawyer who would go rabid pit bull on the judges ass. So heres you Tru.

      Question: How do these guys, who have so much to loose, put themselves in situations where they can/will loose it all? Stupidity

      ny state doesnt allow you to bail out on murder charges they wont give you a bail you have to sit between 2 and 3 yrs before you even go to trail thats just how it is in the rotten apple

    • irshhhhmob

    “….after declining to answer how his client’s spirits are behind bars”

    What the fuck does that mean? You can’t tell us if dude is doing okay or not? Must be the latter.

    Sounds like they might just be trying to get him to roll on his brother.


      the golden rule when your life in on the line…when in doubt, DON’T SAY SHIT!
