Ralo Bond Hearing Reportedly Cancelled Until Further Notice

Ralo was arrested in April 2018 after authorities found 440 pounds of marijuana aboard his private plane.

Since then, the rapper has been looking to get released from jail as he awaits trial. His team was even able to get over 11,000 signatures on a petition asked for him to be released. However, that seems to not be up for consideration anymore according to his team.

Via an Instagram story post, Ralo’s team posted a photo with the statement “Ralo bond hearing has been cancelled till further notice. #FreeRalo.”

Previously, a judge denied Ralo’s bond because he believed the rapper was still running a drug empire while in jail.

Fabolous Rejects Plea Deal in Emily B Assault Case, Headed to Grand Jury

Earlier this year, it was reported that Fabolous was expected to take a plea deal in his domestic abuse case with the mother of two of his kids, Emily Bustamante. The plea deal reportedly would’ve had Fabolous’ charges dismissed after he completed the pre-trial intervention program, but now the case is possibly headed to a Grand Jury.

According to Bossip, on Wednesday (June 25), Fabolous’ lawyer told the judge that the rapper wouldn’t be taking the plea deal and would take his chances with the Grand Jury. Prosecutors said that the case would be reviewed by a Grand Jury early next month, but Fabolous’ lawyer doesn’t think it will go that far. He stated, “It won’t necessarily go to the Grand Jury. It’s procedural.”
