Rapper Pooh Shiesty in deep pooh - pleads guilty 97 months+

Shiesty and Bobby Brown — the other man charged in the incident, shot and injured two other men in a parking lot in a shoe deal gone wrong. Shiesty arrived in a McLaren he rented from one of the victims and wanted to negotiate the car's rental as well, but during the transaction, he and Brown shot the men — one in the hip and the other in the ass. The FBI said surveillance footage captured the shooting. While leaving the scene, a Louis Vuitton bag — which had $40,912 in cash — fell out of the McLaren. Shiesty had posted guns and $100 bills on Instagram days before the robbery. Cops tapped the rapper's social media account and found the same bills in the Louis Vuitton bag were also in his posts. Pooh was cooked. He avoids a life sentence but is still looking at 20 years. The judge cautioned that the jointly recommended sentence of 97 months was not guaranteed.
Rapper Pooh Shiesty (Lontrell Williams) agreed to plead guilty in connection with a Florida armed robbery. He faced a maximum sentence of life in prison if he had been convicted at trial of using a firearm "in furtherance of another federal crime of violence." He and another man shot two others in a "high end athletic sneaker" deal gone bad.
