Nipsey Hussle's accused killer, Eric Holder, was arraigned on charges of one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. Holder entered a plea of not guilty, yet if convicted Holder would face a maximum sentence of life in prison. Holder was held on $7 million dollar bail.
According to the police, Holder walked up to Nipsey Hussle and the two men who were with him several times before leaving and returning with a handgun. He fired several times before fleeing in a white Chevy Cruze that was driven by an unidentified woman. Police also have video evidence to support the allegations.
The irony here is Holder is being represented by Christopher Darden, who became famous as a prosecutor during the OJ Simpson trial asking OJ Simpson to try on the infamous gloves. Allegedly Darden reached out to Holder to represent him.
Given Darden's mistakes during the OJ trial, Nipsey Hussle supporters do not predict Darden will get an acquittal for his client. Ironically, Darden actually grew up in the Bay Area. We will all be watching this trial closely.
Meek Mill responded to news of Darden taking the case calling out Darden for "self hate."
