It’s official. G-Dep has been indicted for murder and faces life after “confession”:
A Manhattan grand jury has indicted “G-Dep” for the 1993 murder that the hapless, Harlem-born rapper confessed to earlier this month. The rapper has now gone from being a free man — unsought in the cold-case shooting — to a no-bail defendant facing a maximum possible prison term of 25 years to life.
“He was making amends,” defense lawyer Michael Alperstein explained of his client’s confession, which he said was prompted by a 12-step narcotics program. “He didn’t know he’d killed somebody. He knew he’d done something wrong.”
G-Dep — a one-time P-Diddy protege — was last week catapulted to a fame he never enjoyed in rap after walking into the 25th police precinct and confessing to a cold-case shooting, only to be shocked to learn that his alleged victim had died and that he was now a murder suspect. He’d made the confession over the objections of loved ones,
“When they told me, I was like, ‘Oh, I’m not going home after this,'” G-Dep, real name Trevell Coleman, told The Post in an exclusive interview.
“I’m just trying to get right with God,” he explained of his confession.
Prosecutors say he faces up to life in prison.
