Rapper Gunna Reportedly Denied Bond On Racketeering Charge

According to an updated report by 11Alive, Gunna was denied bond in an appearance Wednesday in Fulton County court.

As we previously reported, Gunna surrendered to police and was booked on racketeering charge earlier in the morning.

Gunna, whose legal name is Sergio Kitchens, is one of the 28 alleged gang members named in the Fulton County district attorney’s indictment. The news site reports that Gunna was denied bond on jurisdictional grounds. It was not on the substance of his case.

The Magistrate Court judge agreed with prosecutors that in this instance because the case has already been indicted, only the Superior Court judge to whom the RICO case has been assigned has authority to decide on bond, the news site notes.

However, he did say he “absolutely would consider bond” on the merits of the case, “but I don’t have the authority to do it today.”  So, what exactly does this mean? Gunna could remain in jail for several weeks.

Gunna’s attorney is hoping to still have the Magistrate Court judge hear bond at a sooner date. He said he would ask the Superior Court judge to authorize the Magistrate Court to hear the bond matter.




The Magistrate Court judge indicated he would do so if he’s authorized by the higher court judge, 11 Alive reports.
