theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Young Buck was shut down in his attempt to postpone the court hearing that could send him back to prison for a year — with a federal court judge ordering the rapper to appear before the court this week with no postponements – where he will have to explain his recent arrest and other alleged probation violations.
Here’s the latest: On August 8th, the prosecution fired back, blasting the rapper’s attempt to postpone the hearing saying one of the reasons he isn’t still behind bars right now is because he agreed to a hearing that would be scheduled shortly after he was released.
They explain if Buck is given a postponement than it will prejudice the safety of the victim or allow him – if he chose – to try and influence that victim.
Further, they say they have copied and sent over all evidence they have to Buck’s legal team
The judge came back Monday and sided with the Federal Government by denying the rapper’s motion to postpone his hearing. It will go on as scheduled later this week. Buck is facing years in prison for the probation violation of being arrested for making the threats.
Here’s the backstory: Back in 2012, Young Buck checked in to prison to begin his 18 months sentence for gun possession. He was sentenced to the time following a federal agent raid on his home in 2010, which uncovered multiple guns inside, which was illegal due to him being a felon.
The rapper was released from Mississippi prison in October 2013 and began his probation. Then following his release, docs were filed by the prosecution that allege Buck had once again violated the terms of his probation.
They explained, Buck’s probation officer was informed that the rapper had made death threats against another person. The P.O. contacted the alleged victim – the fiancé of one of the rapper’s baby mama – who informed him that Buck was in arrears on his child support to the baby mama. The man texted Buck asking him about the child support owed and told Buck that he was a sad excuse for a father who didn’t care about his daughter.
Buck responded by sending a chain of texts that included physical threats against the fiancé (which is Buck’s baby mama). He used foul language and derogatory language, called the victim a racial epithet several times, accused him of being a drug addict, and made several threats to ‘slap the s*** out of him’ and beat him up. He also inquired about the man’s location and texted that he was going to ‘f*** u up”.
The rapper claimed to his P.O. that he thought the text were originally from an attorney and that the man even said in one text message that a District Attorney was reading the conversation. He believed the victim defrauded him by attempting to portray that he was acting in some sort of official capacity.
The probation officer filed the docs asking the judge to order Buck to appear in court and explain himself. The P.O. is also asking the judge to find the rapper in violation of his probation, which could have him back in prison for up to 14 months.
Buck then was arrested last week for allegedly threatening to burn down his ex-girlfriend/baby mama’s apartment. Law enforcement sources in Tennessee said that the rapper was picked up after his ex-reported to police he had text her the threat and then showed up to her apartment, kicked down the door but left without disturbing anyone inside. He was arrested and spent a couple hours behind bars before being released on $5k bond.
On July 28th, the prosecutors headed back to court and filed a motion for detention. They explain that they want Young Buck detained pending supervised release revocation proceedings – set for August – due to their fear he will flee and poses a danger to others.
The judge signed off on keeping Buck locked up over the weekend and then decided to release him on Monday and allow him to be free until his hearing later this month to determine if the rapper has violated the terms of his probation
According to the docs, Buck’s ex was granted a temporary restraining order against him due to the alleged threats he made to her.
The order states that the judge found there is probable cause to believe that Buck violated the terms of his supervised release but didn’t believe he was truly a flight risk and allowed the rapper to be freed until the hearing.
However, the judge warned the rapper that he will be locked up again if he has any contact, directly or indirectly, with Ms. Lucresia Neal aka his ex-girlfriend/baby mama.
