Max B, formerly of Byrd Gang was found guilty (on 9 of 11 counts), this morning in a robbery that left one man dead. His rep has confirmed that this is factual, although details on how much time he will serve have yet to be reviled.

Case accusations state that Max B was the ringleader in a $30,000 heist that targeting two wealthy men, along with his step brother, Kelvin Leerdam and his girlfriend, Gina Conway, who was the prosecutions key witness in the case, testifying against Max in return for a less serious sentencing.

I will update this posting with new details as they are confirmed.

UPDATE - Max B's lawyer, Gerald Saluti, released the following statement:

“Max B would like to first thank all his family, friends and fans that have supported him throughout this trial. Please don’t give up on him at this point. Although the jury has spoken and Max has been convicted of felony murder, kidnapping, robbery and conspiracy a swift and successful appeal shall follow. It is inconceivable that a jury would convict Max under the facts presented by the State. Even Gina Conway the State’s own witness testified that Max knew nothing of a robbery.Ms. Conway, a jilted lover and proven liar, said so at the trial itself. Max said after the verdict was read that he is confident that justice will eventually be served and he will be free. Max intends to continue putting out music for his fans while the appeal process grinds along. Although shocked by the verdict, Max remained grateful.”
