Obama Becomes 6th YSL Member To Take Plea Deal

Antonio “Obama” Sumlin, is now the 6th defendant to accept a plea deal in the RICO case against rapper Young Thug.

Obama has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, two counts of conspiracy to commit a crime and participation in criminal street gang activity. Sumlin was sentenced to 15 years of probation with specific conditions set by the court.

“As part of this particular plea and this particular case, you understand that you need to abide in full by each of the terms of your negotiated agreement between you and the State. You also understand if you fail to do so that would constitute a violation of your agreement. You also agree that you will testify truthfully about all matters in regards to this case,” said Fulton County Superior Court Chief Judge Ural Glanville in which Sumlin acknowledged.

Obama’s plea deal comes after five other defendants accepted plea deals, which include Gunna, Walter Murphy, Slimelife ShawtyLil Duke and Young Thug’s brother Unfoonk. Part of Unfoonk’s plea deal, the rapper cannot have any contact with his brother Young Thug.

The high profile case continues and is expected to go to trial next month. Two weeks ago, a grand jury charged the 30-year-old rapper with four more counts. The new charges include street racing, reckless driving, speeding, and more.
