Jimmy Henchman Pens Open Letter After Receiving Two More Life Sentences For Murder Of G-Unit Associate
According to reports, James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond has racked up his third and fourth life sentence for the murder of G-Unit affiliate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher.
The murder occurred after Tony Yayo, Fletcher and 50 Cent reportedly harassed and slapped Rosemond’s 14-year-old son in 2007 amidst an ongoing beef between G-Unit and Rosemond’s Czar Entertainment. In retaliation, Rosemond reportedly vowed that someone in G-Unit would have to die and allegedly paid men two kilos of cocaine to murder Fletcher in 2009.
Rosemond was arrested in 2011. He was sentenced to life in prison in 2013 and received a second life term in 2015 for drug trafficking and weapons possession convictions as well as murder for hire. Now, in 2018, he has picked up two more life sentences for the murder of Fletcher.
In an open letter to All Hip Hop, Jimmy Henchman apologized to his friends and family and denied any involvement in the killing of Fletcher.
This is America! I want to apologize to my family and my support system. Most importantly, to my son; When I asked you to intern as a 14 yr old at my office it was because I wanted you to see your father working and have a strong role model. I wanted you to look up to brown and black people in boardrooms rather than in the streets. I was proud of the work I was doing. I never thought when I sent you on that errand, you would be surrounded and assaulted by 50 Cent and four G-Unit grown men with guns for wearing a T-shirt.
My son I want you to know today – you did nothing wrong by coming to me and letting me know what happened to you. Any child that is under age should let their parents know if they are assaulted.
Sleep with a sound conscious knowing your father is not a murderer and you are not the blame for my incarceration. This is bigger than me or you. I to am a casualty.
When a trial isn’t about fact-finding to elicit the truth and condemn the guilty then it’s not about justice. My trial was about grabbing a headline and building a prosecutors personal career.
After three trials for this murder not one of the governments embellishing witnesses said that I told them to murder Lowell Fletcher; in fact, Brian McCleod, Khalil Abdullah and Jason Williams respectively stated they never had a conversation about the murder.
But even that consistent testimony would not deter credulous prosecutors from repeatedly trying this case.
Even after being phone tapped by a mendacious witness Muhammad Stewart for 2 years there was no evidence of a plot, conspiracy or “intent” to commit murder for hire as charged.
I continue to maintain my innocence.
There is a sickness in this system. My trial was covered up and drown out with unrelated shootings, hip hop gang fairy tales and non-existing “rap wars” that never existed.
For any Black man being painted into that fantasy thug culture is a lethal concoction for a conviction and the prosecutors knew this. The prevalence of this injustice has sprung up grass root organizations to tackle systematic racism in the criminal justice system. Which result in mass incarceration and wrongful convictions disproportionately affecting black and brown people.
You would think black and brown people are the only ones that commit crimes because that is all I see. But this is America.
