Judge denies Memphis rapper’s request for bail, release

Young Memphis rap sensation Bo Chisty:

Memphis rapper Bo Chisty is not yet out of prison. On Thursday, the artist’s request for bail and release pending sentencing in a federal firearms case was denied.

The rapper – born in Lontrell Williams – was seeking a guarantee after deciding to cut a deal with federal prosecutors earlier this month. He has been imprisoned in Florida since July 2021.

Williams’ attorneys filed the suit in US District Court in South Florida on Wednesday.

In their pleadings, the attorneys argued that the circumstances in Williams’ case had changed in view of his agreement to plead guilty, and that “the defendant’s right to pretrial release under reasonable conditions is fundamental under the Florida Constitution and the Federal Constitution.”
