Pooh Shiesty will remain behind bars until his April trial after a judge denied bond again.
Pooh Shiesty entered the plea change and filed a motion for bond but according to court docs obtained by TSR, he was denied.
The motion noted that because his plea altered his circumstances, and he had a “right to pretrial release under reasonable conditions is a fundamental right under both the Florida and federal Constitutions.”
Pooh Shiesty’s attorney also stated that he is a rapper and “does not pose a danger to the community.”
Rapper Pooh Shiesty pleaded guilty to a firearms conspiracy charge after allegedly shooting two men at a Florida hotel in October 2020. Federal prosecutors have dropped three other charges because of Shiesty’s guilty plea which means that he has avoided a life sentence in prison. Shiesty was arrested in connection with a shooting in Bay Harbor Islands that left two men hospitalized.
