Remy Ma Found Guilty, Faces Up to 25 Years in Prison

March 31, 2008 7:48 PM | Remy Ma | Comments (0)

Remy Ma (A.K.A. Remy Smith) is on her way to doing some serious time in prision.  The Bronx rapper cried tears last Thursday after she was found guilty on all four charges of assault in state Supreme Court in Manhattan. She was convicted on two counts of first-degree assault, attempted coercion, and criminal possession of a weapon in the shooting of Makeda Barnes Joseph outside a night club last summer.

Friends and family of Barnes Joseph cheered and taunted Remy when the verdicts were read. Some were said to have chanted "bye, bye" in a singsong tone as Smith left the courtroom in handcuffs. Remy was immediately jailed without bail while awaiting sentencing on April 23. Remy faces up to 25 years in prison.

On July 14, 2007 Remy accused Barnes Joseph of stealing $3,000 from her purse and shot her in the stomach. The defense argued that the gun carried by Remy went off accidentally during a struggle, striking Barnes Joseph in the abdomen.

Remy was however acquitted of gang assault and witness tampering, among the nine total charges she faced. Prosecutors had also accused her of dispatching friends to harass and beat up the boyfriend of a witness in the case. A man who tried to help the boyfriend was also attacked.
