Bobby Shmurda’s Attorney Reveals Why $2 Million Bail Package Was Withdrawn

Thing were looking up for Bobby Shmurda on Friday, Jan. 30 after his attorney Kenneth Montgomery announced the “Hot N-gga” rapper posted $2 million bail. But Montgomery announced a few days later that bail package was withdrawn.

Montgomery opened up on the reasoning behind this in an interview with Complex Mag.

“It wasn’t really money. It was property,” he said. “You need collateral. You need property that has a lot of equity in it. The issue wasn’t with the property. It was an issue of how many people owned the property. You had some people who wanted to present the package and you had someone who was an owner that didn’t. That’s why it didn’t work out.”

Montgomery has no doubt in his mind Bobby will be free if a workable bail application was submitted.

“I never had a client present a bail package that was denied,” he said.

Bobby has spent more than six weeks in jail on charges of conspiracy, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and criminally using drug paraphernalia.

Bobby, born Ackquille Pollard, pleaded not guilty to those charges Thursday, Jan. 30 in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Bobby currently has to sit in jail until his upcoming April 22 court hearing.

Bobby Shmurda and GS9 were arrested Dec. 17 after a recording session at Quad Studio. Their arrests follow a long-term investigation by the NYPD for their suspected involvement in gang-related shootings and drug trafficking in NYC, according to the New York Daily News. Police reportedly seized 21 guns during their investigation, 10 of them during the crew’s highly publicized arrests.

If convicted, Bobby faces eight to 25 years in prison.
