As previously reported, Pooh Shiesty was back in court earlier this week, and in the end, he was sentenced to 63 months after he plead guilty to a firearms conspiracy charge that was related to a shooting that took place in Florida.
On Thursday, an email message from Pooh was posted to his Instagram. In the message he said,
“The biggest…I just wanna thank all my love ones, supporters, and fans for holding me down during these hard times. I wish I could be coming home to ya’ll today but this could’ve been wayyyy worse, I will be back sooner than ya’ll think! But meantime new music dropping next week.”
Pooh first surrendered to authorities last June in connection to a strip club shooting that took place in Miami. He was eventually granted bond for that case, and later the alleged victim, in that case, recanted their story. However, he remained behind bars for a case that took place prior to that incident, which was a shooting that occurred in Bay Harbor Islands back in 2020.
He was later indicted for that prior case as officials used posts from his Instagram account to make their decision. He pled guilty to a single count of firearms conspiracy back in January.
However, the judge has given Pooh time served, which means he has the possibility of being released in three years with good behavior.
Pooh’s lawyer Bradford Cohen spoke with Rolling Stone following the judge’s decision and said, “Listen, nobody’s happy to go to prison, but he was happy the judge listened to our argument, and the judge received the argument well. He was satisfied with the outcome. We’re happy with the decision of the court.”
Pooh, who is signed to Gucci Mane’s record label 1017, started to gain mainstream success in 2020 when he dropped his hit record “Back in Blood,” featuring Lil Durk. He followed up with the release of his mixtape “Shiesty Season,” which is RIAA certified platinum.
