Appeals Court Upholds Max B’s Murder Conviction

Despite previous reports, Max B will be serving out his 75-year-sentence after all. Yesterday (August 30), a New Jersey appeals court upheld the murder conviction and 75-year-sentence against the rapper, real name Charly Wingate, for his role in a deadly botched robbery back in 2006.

Max, 34, has been in a New Jersey State Prison cell since 2009 after he was convicted on nine out of 11 counts of murder, robbery and conspiracy charges, stemming from that botched robbery which resulted in the murder of David Taylor. Along with his former girlfriend, Gina Conway, and stepbrother, Kelvin Leerdam, he had plotted to rob Taylor and his associate Allan “Jay” Plowden at a Holiday Inn. The ruling leaves the Harlem native to be imprisoned until the year 2042.
