YFN Lucci is rejecting a plea deal Georgia prosecutors offered him in his racketeering case … we’ve learned Lucci’s instead opting to go to trial to clear his name.
According to court docs, obtained by Hop Hop, Fulton County D.A. Fani Willis recommended a 20-year sentence, 17 of them in prison … and in exchange, Lucci would have to plead guilty to multiple charges — including felony murder, racketeering, aggravated assault and violation of the street gang terrorism and prevention act.
Lucci, whose real name is Rayshawn Bennett, is not interested in the offer. His attorneys, Drew Findling and Gabe Banks, tell us the plea offer is “absurd,” and they strongly hinted the D.A. is intentionally dragging her feet — they point out Lucci is still waiting to go to trial after 2.5 years in custody.
The attorneys also slammed Willis for focusing instead on “newer, high-profile cases that have completely monopolized the Court’s resources” and pointed out her “utter inability to prosecute complex cases.”
They went on to say … “Despite the obstacles consistently placed in the way of Mr. Bennett’s constitutional right to a speedy and fair trial, we continue to be ready and prepared to defend these false allegations.”
As we reported, Lucci got swept up in a massive 2021 indictment charging alleged gang members with a smorgasbord of crimes. Lucc was accused of being the driver in a fatal gang-related shooting, among other things. He has denied any wrongdoing.
