Los Angeles, CA – Eric Holder doesn’t want the transcripts from the grand jury hearing in the Nipsey Hussle murder case to be made public.
According to the Los Angeles Times, a judge denied the demands of the alleged killer’s lawyer Lowynn Young, who was arguing to keep the documents sealed, on June 27. The public defender felt the release of the transcripts would cause public opinion to jeopardize her client’s right to a fair trial.
The transcripts document the May 9 decision by a 23-member grand jury panel to indict Holder on one count of murder, two counts each of attempted murder and assault with a firearm, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. He pleaded not guilty.
The Times’ legal team looked into Holder’s filing and determined his evidence to keep the court transcripts sealed were lacking.
Holder remains behind bars as he awaits trial with bail set at $6.5 million. He’s reportedly due back in court later this month.
Troy Ave recently alluded to Holder on an episode of his YouTube series The Facto Show, arguing that Meek Mill should personally kill him since he likes to discuss street issues so often.
“Then he say ‘yeah and Nipsey said, and Nipsey said,’” Ave said. “Nigga, what the fuck do Nipsey got to do with this shit? Nothing at all. If that’s a fact, there’s a nigga sitting in jail that killed Nipsey. Bail that nigga out and kill him on the streets, if niggas are really on some shit.”
Meek has yet to respond.
