Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond Drug Trial Begins

The drug trial for Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond has commenced.

The drug trial for Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond has commenced.

According to NY Times, the 47-year-old, who formerly managed The Game and Gucci Mane, went before a judge in a federal court in Brooklyn on charges that he led a drug ring that pushed millions of dollars worth of cocaine. He is also accused of laundering money and tampering witnesses.

Rosemond’s lawyer, Gerald L. Shargel, declared that his client was “a perfect scapegoat for accusation” during his opening statements. “James Rosemond never touched a kilo of cocaine,” he said. “He is not that kingpin that the government says he was.”

Federal Drug Enforcement Administration special agent Carlos Giraldo testitifed that he used UPS shipping labels in August to track down several kilos of cocaine believe to be connected to Rosemond’s organization.

Back in February, prosecutors said they were accruing evidence to charge Rosemond with the 2009 murder of 50 Cent associate Lowell Flecher, though he has not been charged with any murders.

The trial is expected to take several weeks. HipHopDX will keep you updated.
