Mohammed Gangat, CEO of Lawyer for Workers, has revealed that prosecutors will be allowed to use YNW Melly's tattoos as evidence to help them "prove that one of the reasons behind this murder was a gang affiliation."
According to Gangat "under Florida law, that's an enhancement. It subjects you to, I think, the death penalty if you get convicted of murder with a gang connection."
The rapper has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder in February 2019 for allegedly shooting YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty as they claim "the capital felony was committed for pecuniary gain, the capital felony was especially heinous, atrocious, or cruel, the capital felony was a homicide and was committed in a cold, calculated, and premeditated manner without any pretense of moral or legal justification."
The lawyer adds, "This coming week, the judge is going hear a motion seeking to exclude the prosecution's expert witness who says that the fatal shots came from the backseat."
