Gang Trial Paused Due to Secret Judge’s Meeting

A shocking report rocked the legal world this week regarding the trial of Atlanta rapper Young Thug and five of his associates.

This trial, so far, has had 10 months of jury selection and 100 days of trial.

It has all been halted, however, due to a secret meeting the judge reportedly took.

Pause It

Judge Ural Glanville broke the news this week that proceedings would be halted.

The reason is a Fulton County, GA, judge, the same county where Fani Willis has indicted Trump, has to rule on whether Glanville needs to recuse himself from the case.

This is all centered around a dispute over an allegedly improper and potentially unconstitutional meeting between the judge, prosecutors, and an uncooperative witness.

The defense has repeatedly made motions for Glanville to step aside in the case, and he rejected each and every one of them.

However, the judge agreed that this decision is no longer within his purview, so he is deferring to an outside ruling, stating, “Hopefully it will get done fairly quickly.”

In one of the latest motions, Douglas S. Weinstein, a lawyer for another defendant in the case, argued, “An appearance of impropriety and bias hangs over the present trial due to Chief Judge Glanville’s failure to follow the law.”

Young Thug was indicted in May 2022 in a RICO case. The case involves Thug and more than two dozen other defendants for alleged gang activity.

Included in the evidence were lyrics from Thug’s songs, which he claimed were nothing more than artistic expression.

After the indictment came down, he stated, “I always use my music as a form of artistic expression, and I see now that Black artists and rappers don’t have that freedom.

“Everybody please sign the Protect Black Art petition and keep praying for us. I love you all.”
