Pooh Shiesty Denied Bond, Will Stay In Prison Through Sentencing

Pooh Shiesty has been denied bond in his ongoing federal firearms case and will remain in prison in Florida, where he’s been since July 2021. The Memphis rapper’s motion to be granted bond comes after taking a plea deal with federal prosecutors, earlier this month. 

Shiesty’s proposal offered him to undergo “unspecified monitoring, limited visitation, and drug and alcohol treatment,” and put forth a $1,000,000, 10% cash bond. Additionally, his lawyer argued that he “does not pose a danger to the community,” and would stay within the Southern District of Florida.
