YSL’s alleged co-founder, Walter Murphy, turns himself in on RICO charges, as he was named in YSL’s indictment

Alleged YSL Co-Founder Walter Murphy turns himself in on RICO charges

On Thursday, it was officially revealed by a judge, that Young Thug’s bond request, was denied. Prosecutors explained how dangerous that Thug is, and how the bond was also rejected, due to posing a threat to the public, and concern of witness tampering.

Thug will remain in the Cobb County Jail, until his January 2023 trial date. Gunna’s bond request was also denied last month, and will also remain there, until his January 2023 trial.

28 total members of YSL were indicted, on 56-counts of RICO, murder, gang activity, and more. However, another YSL member has reportedly turned himself in, who is allegedly the co-founder. This is Walter Murphy, as he is said to have turned himself in, on Thursday, according to WSB-TV 2 Atlanta.

But, Murphy did deny that YSL is a gang, and is simply a record label, and “family.” Murphy added that he was a YSL tour manager. Murphy has since been charged with one count of RICO conspiracy. Murphy is also facing aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder. This is said to have involved four victims, since 2019. Murphy has made it known that he will not snitch on any YSL members, to prosecutors.

Murphy’s attorney Jacoby Hudson, revealed that his client is accepting an Alfred Plea. In this situation, he is entering a guilty plea, for lesser charges. Murphy has been trying to explain how good of a person he’s been, since his previous incarceration.

“I spent seven years in prison,” Murphy said. “While I was in prison, you know, I stayed out of they way and I just got my GED, completed all my classes, completed the transitional center. I transitioned back into… the world. I got me a job at the transitional center.”
