Feds Plan to Present Evidence of Pooh Shiesty’s Childhood Crimes During Trial



Prosecutors are attempting to present the entirety of Pooh Shiesty’s alleged criminal

history during his robbery trial, which is set to begin Monday, Oct. 25. According to

court documents, the government plans on presenting evidence of crimes the rapper

is alleged to have committed when he was 11 and 14 years old.

Pooh Shiesty’s attorneys are requesting that the judge block prosecutors from

referencing their client’s robbery case when he was 11, and his assault case from when

he was 14. While the prosecution believes the childhood crimes show “opportunity,

intent, knowledge, or absence of mistake,” the rapper’s lawyers argue that the alleged

crimes have nothing to do with his trial.

“These actions have no direct nexus to Lontrell Williams other than in speculation,”

wrote the defense. “The last incident occurs while Lontrell Williams is in custody.”

The prosecution is expected to respond to the request on Thursday. Pooh Shiesty is

charged with discharging a firearm during a violent crime, conspiracy, and Hobbs Act

robbery. He faces a maximum life sentence if convicted.
