Young Vito, the rapper charged with the murder of Slim Dunkin of the Brick Squad, has been found not guilty.
According to a report from AllHipHop, Vinson “Young Vito” Hadimon was acquitted on murder charges connected with the death of Slim Dunkin. Despite the fact that police were unable to recover a murder weapon in the murder of the up and coming Brick Squad rapper, charges were filed based on numerous eye-witness accounts that named Hardimon as the shooter.
Although he was not convicted of the murder, Hardimon was found guilty of aggrevated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. Based on the aforementioned convictions Judge Craig Schwall sentenced Hardiman to the maximum allowed under the law, 25 years.
The case stems from the 2011 slaying of Slim Dunkin who is a life time friend of Waka Flocka Flame at an Atlanta recording studio. The incident took place during a video shoot and is said to have started over a piece of candy.
Waka Flaka recently spoke out concerning the death of his friend.
“His death hurt me though, mentally, like, the whole team too. We just now getting over it.”
