- More than two years after Nipsy Hustle was killed Outside the store, his marathon outfit in South Los Angeles.
- The murder trial is still waiting to proceed.
According to this New York Daily News, new attorney Eric Holder – the man accused of killing rapper Crenshaw on May 31, 2019 – said the case should be brought to court by December. On Tuesday (July 29), Assistant Public Defender Aaron Jansen told in court: “Most of the work was done by my predecessors. We hope to go to court at the end of the year, maybe early December.”
Jansen added, “He has a significant history of mental health. One thing that intercepted his attention [March 2019] was that his mother had recently passed away. He was pretty depressed. “The case broke because Eric Holder refused to leave his cell, the COVID-19 pandemic, the retirement of a previously appointed judge, and O.J. Simpson’s attorney Christopher Darden has resigned as defense attorney following threats against his family.
Holder, 31, was charged with double homicide and attempted double homicide because the bullet hit two people nearby. He pleaded not guilty to charges of shooting multiple shots from two different weapons at the Nipsey Hussle.
Eric Holder was in court on Tuesday but failed to appear before Judge Clay Jack over Aaron Jansen, who had his handcuffs removed before filmed. Needing more time to ponder the request, Jack allowed it to appear without his client.
“I don’t want him to be portrayed as harming him,” his lawyer said after the trial. “He’s in a good mood. He wanted me to send him some books. He is very isolated [in detention]. He didn’t get out of his cell much, only a few hours a day a week to play basketball on his own. “
Holder asked for a $6.5 million bail and said it poses no risk to the public, but his request was turned down in April. If found guilty of the murder of Nipsi Hasle, he faces life in prison.
