Gucci Mane artist Pooh Shiesty was granted a $30,000 bond on Wednesday after the Brooklyn native was arrested on Tuesday in Florida for allegedly shooting two people during a failed drug and sneaker deal.
"They freed Pooh Shiesty, not free for good, free pending trial," said Mo Gangat, the New York City-based attorney who frequently covers high profile rap cases. "Four felony charges, he appeared in court today, a bond was set, $30,000. He's now out pending trial. If that sounds low to you, it means two things — one, he's got good lawyers. He’s hired Bradford Cohen who also represented Kodak Black, also represented YNW Melly, and now representing Pooh Shiesty. Second, the charges just aren't as strong as the cops want them to be. You dig into this case a little bit, stuff's not starting to add up."
During his Instagram post, Gangat broke down the issues that the prosecution is facing when proving their case.
"Pooh Shiesty, big-time rapper right now, gotta lot of buzz," Gangat added. "Why would he go show up at an armed robbery with a duffle bag full of cash? That's what the cops are saying. The cops are saying there was a duffle bag full of cash. They're linking it to Pooh Shiesty, but if you’re going to commit an armed robbery, why would you go there with a bunch of cash? This could very well be something completely different. The two victims' statements are not entirely adding up. They can't identify Pooh as the shooter. They say they were there to sell drugs, so doesn’t lead to a whole lot of credibility for them."
