Rapper Bobby Shmurda could get early prison release in WEEKS for good behavior after gun and drug conviction
RAPPER Bobby Shmurda may reportedly be released from prison next month if he continues to behave properly.
Shmurda, who is being held at Clinton Correctional Facility in New York, could be freed as soon as next month, TMZ reported on Monday.
The rapper’s conditional release date was updated to Feb. 23, 2021 by the Department of Corrections.
Shmurda, lesser known as Ackquille Pollard, was previously set to be released 10 months after that date.
The rapper’s behavior and participation and programs at the prison prompted the Time Allowance Committee to change his release date, law enforcement sources told TMZ.
Prison staff sit on the committee, which is a separate entity from the parole board.
If released, Shmurda would be under parole supervision.
He cannot afford to let his good behavior slip during the weeks leading up to his conditional release date, as any hiccup could put him back to his original Dec. 11, 2021, date.
Shmurda pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to possess weapons and possession of weapons in September 2016, and accepted a seven-year prison sentence.
In 2017, Shmurda pleaded guilty to promoting prison contraband and was sentenced to four years in prison, which he served concurrently.
Shmurda was denied parole in September due to multiple violations including alleged fighting and drug possession while incarcerated.
