Ivan Fisher, the defense attorney, admitted that they bagged a reduced sentence of eight years for the assault and weapon charges, instead of a 13-year jail term. Remy Ma was emotional in court and confessed that the shootings were not premeditated.
Papoose and a few fans with "Free Remy" inscribed t-shirts were present at the hearing and displayed an outburst of emotions after the judge handed down the judgment.
