Pooh Shiesty to remain in federal detention until trial
A Miami federal judge orders Pooh Shiesty to remain detained in federal custody until the trial on robbery and firearm charges. As Pitchfork reports, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida announced the ruling.
The charges stem from an October 2020 incident where Shiesty and two accomplices reportedly shot and robbed individuals who were selling them marijuana and high-end sneakers. The altercation was caught on a surveillance camera.

The “Back in Blood” rapper was recently indicted on the federal charges of conspiring to possess firearms in furtherance of a crime of violence, conspiring to commit a Hobbs Act robbery, committing a Hobbs Act robbery, and discharging a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.
Shiesty was picked up by the authorities in June on aggravated battery charges after he was reportedly involved in a confrontation outside of a Miami strip club that left a security guard shot. Shiesty was out on bond at the time. The witness in the case later recanted his testimony.
