Young Thug Charged With More Gun, Drug, and Gang Charges



Young Thug, who is already part of a 56-count indictment against the RICO Act, has more charges to deal with now. These charges are gun, drugs, and gang-related.

Most of these charges come from the weapons and drugs seized from Young Thug’s home on the day of his arrest. One of the weapons was a modified machine gun.

According to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ office, the new charges are focused only on Young Thug and four others, including Yak Gotti and Duke. According to Willis, these new indictments are more proof that Thug has been a gang leader for years.

However, Thug, Yak Gotti, and Duke’s attorneys are all saying that they believe that their clients are innocent. They are planning to fight tooth and nail to prove it in the courtroom.

Young Thug has been in jail since the arrest. He has been denied bond twice. He will most likely stay in prison until the date of his trial. Part of the reasoning for the denial is something that Thug said in 2015. “Anybody goes into courtroom and tells the god’s honest truth, they’ll be f—ing killed.”

There is still one more set of indictments to go, according to D.A. Wallis. However, he told reporters in July to expect two rounds of indictments over the next sixty days. This is the first round.

The trial has been set for January 9, 2023. Follow us for more updates as  this case unfolds: FMHipHop:  Twitter, Instagram, Facebook.
