Tru Life Sentenced to Eight Years

Tru Life pleaded guilty in court today for a 2009 incident that left one man dead. The New York rapper (born Robert Rosado) was sentenced to eight years behind bars.

The former Jay-Z associate accepted a plea deal in the case, copping to gang assault in the second degree.  He was originally charged with one count of murder in the second degree, one count of attempted murder in the the second degree, two counts gang assault in the first degree and one account of assault in the first degree.

His brother, Marcus Rosado, also fingered in the case, entered a guilty plea as well and received a 10 year sentence. His charges (the same as Tru) were reduced to manslaughter in the first degree.

As previously reported, the Rosado brothers were arrested for the murder of Christopher Guerrero, and critically injuring Jason Gray on June 15, 2009. Police sources say the men stabbed Guerrero in the stomach and Gray in the chest following an ongoing altercation that began at Club Pasha in midtown Manhattan, earlier that night.

“Robert and Marcus Rosado accepted responsibility today for their role in the tragic incident that occurred in June 2009,” their lawyer, Alan A. Ambramson told XXLMag.com “They wish to express their deepest sympathies to the Guerrero family and they hope that by accepting responsibility he can bring some measure of closure to the family.

Both men have been behind bars since their time of arrest one and a half years ago. Abramson said they will both get credit for time served.—Jesse Gissen

      If he did it then I feel u but hell neither of us was there so we don’t know what happened. Plus it’s two sides to every story. Not including Tru Life it’s plenty of cats in jail for stuff they didn’t do.

    Real Talk, he was nice on the mic but its funny becuz he was a real G, Ed Lover reported when all 3 was at some fucntion that was going on downtown, True walked up on Cam and his 2 body gaurds by his self and punched Cam dead in his face and Cam didnt do nothing but hold his eye, Ed Lover said I was standing right there, I saw everything. Lmao @ Ed Lover!!!! He also had Jim scared to death. The most important thing I like about him, he was the only rapper denouncing that gang shhh in NY. He was the only one dissing ppl from NY jumping on the band wagon joining Bloods and Crips, thats one of the reasons he started dis liking Jim Jones besides a few personal things but I got much luv for you my dude, hold your head.
