A second member of Bobby Shmurda’s GS9 camp learned his fate this week in an NYC courtroom.
Alex “A-Rod” Crandon was found guilty of murder on Friday and sentenced to 53 1/3 years in prison for conspiracy, murder, attempted murder and other charges, according to the New York Daily News.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Abraham Clott, who also sentenced 24-year-old Rashid Derissant to 98 years in prison on Tuesday, reportedly dismissed Crandon’s pleas for mercy.
“Please allow me the opportunity to become a productive citizen and raise my daughter to become one also,” he said.
Clott was unmoved by Crandon’s statement, saying he “irrevocably” gave up the opportunity to have a second chance.
“The community must be protected given the enormity of the crimes here,” Clott said, referring to the GS9 member as a threat to public safety.
Derissant was sentenced on gang-related charges, including conspiracy, murder, attempted murder and assault.
Derissant is accused of shooting four people in a Brooklyn bodega in February 2013, one of which was fatal. The deceased victim was a 19-year-old rival gang member.
In July 2014, he shot a 22-year-old innocent bystander in the neck and hip.
Bobby Shmurda will learn his fate after his trial on conspiracy, gun and drug charges commences on Sept. 12.
Shmurda and seven of his GS9 guys were arrested December 2014 following a long-term NYPD investigation.
Bobby is currently at Westchester County Correction facility.
