AllHipHop claims YNW Melly’s attorneys are seeking to have restrictions removed on his visitations at Broward County Jail. The rapper has those limitations due to the accusation from his cellmate.
“On or around late March 2022, another inmate filed a grievance alleging that Mr. Demons was in possession of shanks and pipe bombs,” the documents read. “In response correction personnel conducted a search of the entire dorm, at which time Mr. Demons was found with one (1) writing utensil and potato chips. However, another inmate on the dorm was found in possession of shanks, prescription drugs and other contraband.”
Five months prior to now, YNW Melly was only given permission to visit with his legal team in rooms that were not the proper size. Melly’s attorneys claim that without the entire team being present they are not able to adequately prepare for defense.
In July 2022, the convicted murderer caught a break when a judge ruled the death penalty was no longer an option. On the basis of a small detail, the legal team for the “Murder On My Mind” rapper was able to have the death penalty removed from the his sentence. His attorneys quoted a requirement of a special Florida criminal procedural provision where the prosecutors has to notify the court of their intention to seek the death penalty. The notice was never submitted.
In February 2019 YNW Melly was arrested on two counts of first-degree murder for the 2018 killings of the 23-year-old Florida native’s friend YNW Sakchaser, born Anthony Williams, and YNW Juvy, born Christopher Thomas Jr..
