G Herbo Pleads Not Guilty To Federal Credit Card Theft Charges, Lawyer Reveals Engagement To Pregnant Girlfriend Taina Williams + His Ex Ariana Fletcher Will Testify
Rapper G Herbo (real name Herbert Randall Wright III) has pleaded not guilty to federal credit card theft charges.
The 25-year-old rapper appeared in court Wednesday, December 8th via Zoom call. His lawyer also reportedly revealed to the judge that G Herbo is engaged to his girlfriend Taina Williams, stepdaughter of rapper Fabolous, and that she is four months pregnant.
The presiding judge over the case, Katherine Robertson, did approve a request for Wright to be allowed to visit 22-year-old Taina Williams in New Jersey throughout the proceedings and eventually when their new baby arrives.Taina Williams and Wright have been publicly dating since January 2019.
An indictment issued on October 15th in Massachusets alleged Wright and five others, including his producer, used stolen credit card info for trips on private jets, designer dogs, luxury vacations, and cars.The charges occurred over four years and racked up to more than $1.5 million. Prosecutors allege it could be more because of the amount merchants had to pay back.
The mother of his child and former girlfriend Ariana Fletcher will also reportedly be a witness in the case, according to court records. The two had been dating for four years before their split in 2018. While the pair is allowed to communicate about their shared child, two-year-old Yosohn Santana Wright, Herbo is not allowed to talk her about the case.
Ariana Fletcher did tweet amid news of her being a witness:
“I was subpoenaed to court because of the timing of the relationship. I can’t tell sh** because I don’t know sh**. Stop trying it.”
If convicted, the rapper could face up to six years in prison. Time could also be tacked on due to his criminal past, which includes a weapon conviction in Cook County. In addition to limited traveling, Wright is supposed to stay away from drugs throughout the duration of the trial.
