Young Thug's Co-Defendant Claims Trump Gave Him Legal Advice

Young Thug's co-defendant Jayden Myrick claims he received legal advice from President Trump and other officials, which is an important development in the rapper's trial which has been delayed due to jury selection issues.

Jeffery Lamar Williams, better known by his real name, is one of 14 defendants named in a gang indictment. They're accused of participating in racketeering conspiracy and criminal street gang activity.

Jayden Myrick claims he received legal advice from President Trump

Jayden Myrick, a former murder suspect serving a life sentence in Georgia, claims President Trump provided him with legal counsel. This assertion was made in a motion filed Tuesday (February 21) by attorney Gina Bernard, his legal representative in the YSL RICO trial.

Young Thug and his group, YSL Rico, are facing a high-profile legal battle. Prosecutors accuse YSL of involvement in multiple crimes and conspiracies, including violent acts committed within Atlanta. The indictment points to lyrics, social media posts and clothing merchandise bearing the word "SLIME" as evidence of YSL's criminal activities.

Prosecutors allege that YSL and his collective pretended to be a gang, using music and social media platforms for self-promotion, leading to numerous incidents of violence. They are also accused of making money through drug dealing and carjacking.

Though many show their support for the rapper, some are doubting his innocence in this high-profile trial. Some even speculate that he may have committed murder or robbery out of greed to obtain money and power.

Those following this trial say it is highly complex. It has been an emotional roller coaster ride for both sides, with many defendants being forced to accept plea deals.

As the trial progresses, one of YSL's co-defendants has requested a mistrial due to leaked videos. According to HipHopDX, Myrick's lawyer Gina Bernard filed the motion on Tuesday (February 21), asserting her client's Sixth Amendment right to an impartial jury has been violated.

Her motion also highlighted the media attention that has surrounded this trial since its start, asserting that it "has tainted the jury pool, making it impossible to conduct a fair trial."

Prosecutors are still searching for jurors to hear their case against YSL and its members. They face a total of 65 charges, including conspiracy to violate the RICO Act and involvement in illegal street gang activity.

Fulton County Chief Judge Ural Glanville orders a mental evaluation for Myrick

Christian Broder's killer, rapper Drake, has been in and out of custody over the course of a year. Now he's back in court for another bond hearing.

At his bond hearing in the Young Slime Life RICO trial, Myrick -- one of 14 defendants in the case -- claimed President Trump had provided him with legal advice. Additionally, he made several strange comments which prompted Glanville to order him to receive a mental evaluation within 48 hours.

If the judge determines Myrick is unfit to stand trial, his case could be seperated from those of his 13 co-defendants so the trial can commence more quickly. Doing this helps avoid delays which could exacerbate existing issues in the case.

The trial, which centers on the rapper's alleged involvement in a violent street gang, has been postponed several times since it started. Now it is expected to last at least one month.

However, there has been progress made in the trial and it may begin as soon as Thursday. That is because prosecutors have agreed to require defense attorneys in the Young Slime Life case to withhold contact information for witnesses from their clients.

Prosecutors believe this will make it simpler for them to obtain evidence in the trial. They also claim it will protect witnesses from gang members who could potentially kill or harm them in exchange for testimony.

Prosecutors have suggested that holding the RICO trial in a federal courthouse would be more efficient. They note that state courts are unsuitable for this kind of proceeding since they lack federal oversight.

It's possible the court may attempt to relocate Young Slime Life's trial to another county, but that hasn't happened yet. Instead, the case is being held in Fulton County - a city close to Atlanta.

Glanville has extensive judicial experience from his time serving in the United States Army, giving him valuable insight to overseeing the Young Slime Life trial. Furthermore, his leadership skills and aptitude for problem-solving have earned him a place of honor within his team.

Myrick claims he’s not guilty

The Young Thug RICO case is in full swing, and Jayden Myrick - one of its co-defendants - claims President Trump provided legal counsel during a court appearance. Myrick, accused of multiple crimes involving the Young Slime Life gang, told Fulton County Chief Judge Ural Glanville during his court appearance that Trump had provided him with assistance during a meeting with the president.

Myrick, who is accused of murder, armed robbery and other crimes, appeared in court this week and admitted to mocking the family of a victim. Additionally, he claimed to have attempted to intimidate witnesses in his own case.

DNA expert testimony revealed that Myrick and another individual with whom he committed crimes shared a common ancestor. However, Myrick insisted his DNA didn't match that sample from the woman who was killed, thus negating his guilt in the matter.

But a judge isn't convinced. He ordered Myrick to receive a mental evaluation by the state Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities.

If Myrick is found mentally unfit for trial, his case could be separated from the other 14 defendants and focused on other individuals in the case such as Young Thug and Gunna who face more serious charges.

In addition to the YSL RICO case, Myrick is accused of shooting and killing a man in 2018. Christian Broder, a married father who was in Atlanta for his wedding, was standing outside an event center with friends and family when four teenagers in a car approached them. They allegedly robbed them of their belongings before shooting Broder in the stomach, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Myrick and Torrus Fleetwood spotted Broder and others in the parking lot and drove up to them at gunpoint, demanding their belongings - including cellphones and wallets. Once they had everything, Myrick and Fleetwood fled in a white Dodge Charger.

At trial, Myrick reportedly attempted to intimidate witnesses and mock the victims during a jail call. Nonetheless, he was ultimately found guilty of murder charges.

Myrick claims he’s innocent

Early this week, Jayden Myrick - a co-defendant of Young Thug - claimed to have received legal advice from President Trump. In a filing to the Fulton County Court of Appeals, Myrick indicated he had discussed his case with Trump and other officials. This prompted Judge Ural Glanville to order a mental evaluation for Myrick within 48 hours which will assess his competency to stand trial alongside 13 other co-defendants.

The YSL RICO trial has experienced numerous delays since beginning in January, and this latest setback only adds to the misery. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Judge Glanville is now deliberating whether Myrick's claim of legal advice was valid.

He questioned if Myrick's claims were true, and if so, how he could have received legal advice from President Trump. Therefore, the judge ordered Myrick to undergo a mental evaluation before being allowed to represent himself in court.

At present, Myrick is believed to be in custody and expected to remain there until he completes an evaluation. If it's determined that Myrick has mental capacity, Judge Glanville may then allow him to represent himself during the trial.

If the evaluation reveals Myrick to be mentally unfit, he'll be removed from the trial and placed in jail pending another evaluation. This could take months, adding another delay to the YSL RICO trial; however, it is unlikely this will have an adverse impact on its timeline as the case still plans on proceeding as scheduled.

Myrick is serving a life sentence for the murder of Christian Broder in 2018. He was found guilty of multiple counts, including murder, armed robbery and aggravated assault.

On Friday afternoon, Myrick went missing while working with his co-worker Steve Hlebo at GP Sports in San Jose's Cambrian neighborhood on Camden Avenue. During the search for Myrick, detectives discovered evidence of a crime scene inside an unoccupied boarded-up unit next to GP Sports.

In 2014, a fire destroyed the building used as storage. Police are now focusing their search on the area surrounding the burned-out structure. Myrick's family has organized a group of volunteers to assist in finding his remains; they will meet at Summit Road Area of Santa Cruz Mountains on Tuesday afternoon.
