Even though Harlem, New York rapper Max B sounded optimistic about his appeal case earlier this year, it looks like the courts feel differently about the matter. According to a recent report from HipHopWired, Biggavelli’s 75-year prison sentence for his 2006 robbery-murder case has been upheld.
It was announced today that an appeals court has upheld Wavy Crockett’s 2009 conviction for the murder of David Taylor. As a result, Max will be forced to serve out the entirety of his 75-year sentence without the possibility of parole until his release on November 9, 2042.
Despite claims to the contrary, Biggavelli’s appeal was rumored to have been denied as early as February of this year. In his appeal, he argued that the judge who tried him had made a mistake in refusing his request to serparate Max’s trial from that of his partner, Kevin Leerdam.
As of June, Max B had been planning to drop several projects upon his release. There has been no word on whether the upheld conviction will prevent the release of said efforts.
