ATTORNEY FOR RAPPER DARRYL “LIL SCRAPPY” RICHARDSON FILES EMERGENCY MOTION FOR HIM TO BE RELEASED ON BOND AFTER HIS ARREST FOR PROBATION VIOLATON
Entertainer Darryl “Lil Scrappy” Richardson was arrested on Monday, October 1, 2012. He has been charged with violation of probation and is being detained in the DeKalb County Jail. Mr. Richardson, who is currently a cast member of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, had completed all the special conditions of his probation and was no longer required to report to probation.
Mr. Richardson is being represented by Attorney Mawuli Mel Davis of the Davis Bozeman Law Firm. Attorney Davis stated “Mr. Richardson was moved to a non-reporting status about 18-months ago and was not aware that his Probation Officer had sent his notice to his previous home address. It was an oversight that Mr. Richardson did not update his address with probation. He accepts his responsibility for not updating his address, but we think it is important to note that he has not been re-arrested for any new criminal offenses since the conclusion of his case. This warrant is the result of an unfortunate misunderstanding and Mr. Richardson will work with probation to get this resolved.”
An Emergency Motion for Bond was filed on Mr. Richardson’s behalf on October 2, 2012. A DeKalb County Judge will hear the case on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 at 8:30 a.m.
