Back in December Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane was charged with two counts of possessing a firearm as a felon after two different September altercations during which he showed a gun and attempted to threatened police. Now reports claim a 51 year old prisoner is trying his best to get Gucci out of prison.
Information of the inmates attempt to get Gucci out of his legal problems just surfaced online.
It’s like the prison version of “My Cousin Vinny” — a random inmate in South Carolina has just prepared legal docs to get Gucci Mane out of jail … and they’re hilarious. 51-year-old Jerry Lewis Dedrick — who’s currently locked up in a Williamsburg federal prison — has taken it upon himself to get Gucci off gun charges (without Gucci asking) filing a scribbled motion. To his credit, Dedrick has been spending a lot of time reading — not like he has other stuff to do — and claims he’s discovered the key to Gucci’s case. (TMZ)
Even though Dedrick can’t legally do this, he will possibly pass the documents over to Gucci’s attorney.
Several problems — first, his argument makes no sense. Dedrick rambles on about how possessing a gun in itself isn’t a federal crime. Dedrick isn’t Gucci’s lawyer, so he can’t file docs on the rapper’s behalf. But Dedrick wants the court to forward his legal work to Gucci’s lawyer … hoping it will crack the case. Gucci’s currently locked up in Georgia following his September arrest for gun and weed possession — and if this is his best shot at freedom, he’s going nowhere fast. (TMZ)
