Former Bad Boys recording artist G Dep has endured a short, week-long trial for a 1993 murder. The rapper was found guilty.
Despite insisting that the victim in question was not the man he shot on that fateful day in '93, G Dep has been convicted of murder and will face from 15 years to life behind bars. The jury's verdict was announced on April 17th, and reported by the Wall Street Journal.
"A once-rising rapper has been convicted of a 1993 New York City killing after recently telling police he'd shot someone while trying to rob him years ago. Jurors delivered their verdict Tuesday in G. Dep's murder trial. The rapper, born Trevell Coleman, faces at least 15 years in prison."
G Dep was videotaped back in 2010 confessing to the 17 year old crime. His attorney, Anthony Ricco, says Dep does not regret his decision to admit guilt.
"He's made one of the most powerful statements a rapper of this era can make, which is to be accountable," Ricco said. "I told him not to regret his decision, and that God won't abandon him."
Sentencing has not been announced as of yet.
