Renowned rapper G Herbo has reached a plea agreement in Massachusetts, admitting to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and making a false statement to a federal official, as reported by The Chicago Tribune and The Republican. This agreement comes with the dismissal of two aggravated identity theft charges. The artist is set to enter his guilty plea in court later this month and could face a maximum of 20 years in prison.
We reached out to G Herbo’s attorney, James W. Lawson, for comment on the plea agreement, but have yet to receive a response.
Back in 2020, G Herbo, along with five other individuals, was indicted by a federal grand jury for their alleged involvement in a defrauding scheme. According to the indictment, the group reportedly used stolen payment and credit card information to make unauthorized purchases of private jet charters, exotic car rentals, designer puppies, and other items.
When the indictment was made public, G Herbo’s management asserted that the rapper maintains his innocence and eagerly awaits the chance to prove it in court. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and even addressed the situation in his song “Statement.” However, a few months later, he faced an additional charge of making a false statement to a federal official.
Despite the legal challenges, G Herbo has continued to release music, with albums like “25” and “Survivor’s Remorse” hitting the charts. However, he encountered another brush with the law when he was recently arrested for unlawful use of a weapon after a police stop in Chicago earlier this month.
The outcome of G Herbo’s plea agreement remains uncertain, but it marks a significant development in his legal battle. As the court date approaches, the rapper’s future hangs in the balance, and fans and critics alike eagerly await the resolution of this high-profile case.
