Fredo Bang chooses to remain silent in YNW Melly's case
A Florida court is trying to find justice in YNW Melly's double-murder case, and in the process, a prosecutor filed a motion on June 6 to require Baton Rouge rapper Fredo Bang to answer questions in connection to the case. According to documents seen by XXL, Judge Andrew L. Siegel denied the motion after Fredo refused to talk.
“I am representing Mr. Fredrick Givens in The State of Florida vs. Jamell Demons,” Fredo's lawyer Dameka Davis told XXL. “I represented Mr. Givens in the capacity of him being a witness. He has not been charged with any crime by the state of Florida. Mr. Givens has exercised his right to remain silent and the court ultimately granted Mr. Givens' request.”
He added in the statement, ‘'Mr. Givens does not intend to cooperate with the prosecution of this case, but Mr. Givens will fully comply with the law, both state and federal law…We do wish Jamell Demons all the best and we are hoping for a fair and impartial outcome in the resolution of his case.”
The prosecution is claiming that Melly called Fredo to pick him up after allegedly killing Chris Thomas (YNW Juvy) & Anthony Williams (YNW Sakchaser). They wanted to inquire about Fredo's whereabouts at the time of the incident as well as verify his phone numbers and identify the people he was with at the time.
