Florida Rapper Spinabenz Beats His Case, Found Not Guilty & Avoids 30-Years-In Jail
Jacksonville rapper Spinabenz found not guilty on gun charges, avoids possible 30-year sentence.
Noah Williams, aka Spinabenz, is the artist behind the viral hit ‘Who I Smoke.’ He will bond out and leave jail Thursday after a four day trial. — Noah Williams, the Jacksonville rapper known as Spinabenz, has been found not guilty Thursday on charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon after a four-day trial.
The rapper, who performs on the viral song ‘Who I Smoke,’ stood to face up to 30 years. He faced up to 15 years on that charge. If he was found guilty, the trial would have entered a separate sentencing phase to decide if the charges will be enhanced due to Williams’ alleged gang ties — which could have doubled his sentence to 30 years.
Williams will be allowed to go home tonight, after he returns to jail and bonds out, his attorney David Bigney confirmed. He has been in jail since late August after he allegedly removed his ankle monitor while on house arrest.
He still faces the charges for that offense, with pre-trial hearings beginning this month.

The prosecution in his case used his song lyrics as part of their case, referencing a song called ‘My Glock,’ where Williams says “My Glock cost $300,” and references having a woman buy him if a gun if she is “over 18.”
The prosecution’s argument hinged on the narrative that Williams had his girlfriend purchase him the firearm he was accused of possessing.
Throughout the week, attorneys representing the state of Florida argued that during a routine traffic stop where Williams’ girlfriend was driving, he was carrying the gun, and when police pulled them over, he took it out of his waistband and put it in the glove box. The Glock was confiscated at that traffic stop and Williams was arrested after his DNA was found on it.
The fact that 18% of the DNA on the firearm belonged to Williams was brought up throughout the trial, with the defense arguing that this did not prove Williams had used the gun or that it belonged to him and the prosecution arguing that it takes a considerable amount of DNA to create that percentage.
