Young Thug – Judge In Rapper’s YSL RICO Case Orders Investigation After Lil Woody’s Police Interview Was Leaked
The court judge presiding over the Young Thug/YSL RICO case is cracking down on lawyers.
According to reports, Judge Ural Glanville has ordered an investigation after more evidence from the high-profile case was leaked online.
As we previously reported, video footage of an associate of Young Thug, born Jeffrey Williams, 30, being interviewed by police circulated on the internet last month. The YSL member – who goes by Lil Woody — is heard seemingly negotiating information on Young Thug for leniency in his own case. While internet users everywhere were quick to comment their thoughts, the court judge said the footage should still be private.

Reportedly, Fulton County Superior Court Chief Judge Ural Glanville addressed the situation during a hearing yesterday (March 1st). Emphasizing that certain evidence must remain withheld from the public until trial, the judge reportedly stated:
“It affects everyone’s right to a fair trial…I don’t know who did this but if this pertains to you, please amend your ways. You’re playing a very dangerous game with your six-digit bar number.”
Young Thug, fellow Atlanta rapper Gunna, born Sergio Kitchens, 29, and more than 20 other associated individuals were detained back in May of last year on RICO charges. Thug is accused of running an organized gang called YSL and carrying out a number of gang-related crimes. However, The “Best Friend” rapper has been adamant that the group is nothing more than a record label. Reportedly, the trial is expected to last 6 – 9 months and is still in the process of jury selection.
