A former lawyer for incarcerated rapper, YNW Melly, has said that he believes that the rapper will be found not guilty when his case goes to trial.

Bradford Cohen, who currently represents Kodak Black, who is also behind bars, posted his legal opinion via his Instagram account:

"This will be a very interesting trial, I am no longer representing Melly in this matter, but I predict a not guilty based on all the evidence I have reviewed," he wrote.

The celebrity lawyer continued: "He has some very fine attorneys that I believe will be able to secure a favorable verdict. I also think that bond will be granted given the weakness of the evidence. Never rush to judgment in cases until you see everything."

Melly and co-accused, YNW Bortlen are being held on double homicide charges and could face the death penalty if convicted for the murders of friends, YNW Juvy, and YNW Sakchaser.
