Judge to Ja Rule: These Broke Niccas Gotta Post Their Own Bail

The judge has ruled that Ja Rule’s co-defendants must come up with their own bail money, even after Ja made some type of arrangements for it to be paid:

State Supreme Court Justice Micki Scherer said Wednesday (Feb 27), that Ja, born Jeffrey Atkins, “put himself in the position of perhaps controlling the outcome of the case,” adding that she felt it could pose a big problem. Ja Rule was arrested on July 22 along with limo driver Mohamed Gamal and Ja’s road manager, Dennis Cherry, following a Lil’ Wayne concert at the Beacon Theater in New York. The charges resulted from a .40 caliber handgun discovered in the rapper’s Maybach by police, who searched the vehicle after detecting the smell of marijuana. The following day, Ja posted Gamal and Cherry’s combined $170,000 bond, as well as his own $150,000 bond, using his $3.5 million Saddle River, NJ home as collateral. Attorney Stacey Richman, who represents all three men, said the defense would make other arrangements for Gamal and Cherry’s bail. Prosecutors in the case are also seeking to obtain DNA evidence from the three defendants, to determine the rightful owner of the recovered handgun.

Good luck to them. SMH at Ja having to use his house as collateral. He might have to find a new hustle. The rap game ain’t too good to people these days.

    Which would you choose if you needed bail?

    1. Cash on hand

    2. House

    Posting bail is not giving something that you will not get back. The only way they will take his home is if he doesn’t show up for court. Bail is nothing more than collateral in the judicial system.

  • RIP Omar Little

    Why can’t these idiots stay out of jail and SAVE their money? It’s unbelievable.
