Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond Reportedly Set To Appeal Conviction
(AllHipHop News) According to reports, convicted drug dealer James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond has filed an application for appeal. Apparently, the former CEO of Czar Entertainment latest legal actions were inspired by the “Smarter Sentencing Act” criminal justice reform bill currently moving through the U.S. Congress.
“We believe that there were serious problems with the manner in which Mr. Rosemond’s trial was conducted, and that the government failed to present sufficient evidence to secure a conviction,” stated Rosemond’s appellate lawyer Michael Rayfield.
Rosemond was convicted of drug trafficking, obstruction of justice, and other charges in 2012. He was sentenced to life in prison. The leader of the “Rosemond Organization” was sentenced to another life term earlier this year for participating in the murder of G-Unit associate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher.
