Gunna has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, his lawyer Steven H. Sadow tells Pitchfork. The rapper, whose real name is Sergio Giavanni Kitchens, has also been denied bond. His trial is scheduled to begin on Monday, January 9, 2023. Sadow wrote in an email to Pitchfork:

The Court was obviously concerned about threats and intimidation of witnesses. We believe when the Court hears evidence, not just the words of the prosecutor, it will find that Sergio’s release on bond will not, directly or indirectly, pose a significant risk to witnesses. We look forward to having an evidentiary hearing on this as soon as the Court permits.

Gunna was named in a grand jury indictment that alleged that YSL (aka Young Thug’s Young Stoner Life Records) is a criminal street gang.  Young Thug was also charged with conspiracy to violate the RICO Act, and will have a hearing on his bond request on June 2, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.
