Gunna Files Fourth Bond Motion A Week After Third Denial


Gunna, 29, (born Sergio Kitchens) filed for bond a fourth time nearly a week after he was denied on his third attempt!

According to reports, the rapper’s attorneys once again filed legal documents (dated Oct. 17) seeking his release on bond.

Gunna’s co-lead counsel Steven Sadow stated:

“On three prior occasions, Defendant Kitchens has moved the Court for a reasonable bond. On each occasion, the State has made proffers at hearings that turned out to be false and/or misleading.”

Gunna’s legal team has taken issue with Judge Ural Glanville citing “all four bond factors” when denying his third request on Oct. 13, while only two factors were cited in refusing his second bond motion. The defense stated they find this “inexplicable.”


Co-lead counsel, Steven Sadow continued:

“We now know for certain that the State’s last-minute assertion at the third bond hearing on October 13 that there was a text message (not disclosed to Kitchens in discovery as the Court had expressly ordered) between two individuals (neither of whom was Kitchens), where one person ‘offered to murder’ another person on Kitchens’ behalf, was undeniably false.”

Sadow’s new filing says the State,

“has failed to proffer a single violent act or a single threat to a witness by Kitchens or on Kitchens’ behalf.”

He also highlights

“the State’s obvious willingness to say or do anything to deny Mr. Kitchens pretrial bail.” 

Concluding the seven-page motion, Steven Sadow said,

“Sergio Kitchens prays that the Court set this fourth bond motion down for a hearing on the November 10 or 17 calendar and require the State to respond in writing to this motion at least seven days before the hearing. The Court deserves nothing less than to be told the truth by the prosecutors. Kitchens respectfully demands the truth to be told, for his continued pretrial detention based on lies and misrepresentations constitutes a miscarriage of justice.”

As previously reported, the Atlanta rap star was arrested back in May of this year in connection to a slew of RICO charges brought by the Atlanta DA. Gunna was detained along with his close associate/rapper Jeffrey ‘Young Thug‘ Williams, 31, and 28 other YSL associates.

Prosecutors allege the rappers are the cause of multiple murders and armed robberies. They also argue the rappers are involved with criminal street gang activity, claiming that “YSL” was not a record label called “Young Stoner Life” but really a violent street gang called “Young Slime Life” that had wreaked “havoc” on Atlanta for the past decade.
