The former Bad Boy rapper claims that prosecutors won't cut him a break and he will plead not guilty.
Despite turning himself over to police in December 2010 for a murder he committed in 1993, rapper G-Dep is refusing to plead guilty because prosecutors won't cut him a break.
According to DNAInfo.com, the 36-year-old turned himself in to clear his conscience of shooting a man in an attempted robbery, only to later learn that the attack was fatal. The DA's office said it would only offer a plea deal for the top count - murder in the second degree - which could put him behind bars for 25 years to life.
It is my understanding that the parties have not been able to reach an agreement," Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus said. "The people are not willing to offer anything other than a plea to the [top count]."
