Young Thug’s Lawyers File Emergency Motion For Bond, Says He’s In Total Isolation In A Windowless Cement Compartment: It’s Inhumane & Torturous

Young Thug’s lawyers have filed an emergency motion for a bond hearing due to “inhumane” housing!

Attorney Brian Steel says the Atlanta rapper is being held in total isolation in a windowless cement compartment with only a bed and a toilet. He claims an overhead light that remains on 24 hours a day is preventing Young Thug (born Jeffrey Williams) from getting any sleep. His lawyers also claim the 30-year-old rapper has no access to any type of media and that he hasn’t been given the opportunity to exercise, shower or have any human interaction other than his counsel.

In the new motion, lawyers called Young Thug’s housing conditions “inhumane,” saying he’s being held in solitary confinement in a windowless cement room “as if he is a forgotten person alone in the world.”

As previously reported, Young Thug was arrested on Monday (May 9) in a gang-related indictment that named 28 people. He was taken into police custody on an 88-page indictment, including murder, robbery, and assault charges with a timeline of events dating back to 2015.

Thug’s friend and fellow rapper 28-year-old Gunna, born Sergio Kitchens, was among the names listed in the 56-count indictment. Gunna was also charged with conspiring to violate RICO. Other known names also indicted include Yak Gotti, PeeWee Roscoe, and Thug’s brother Unfoonk. The indictment refers to YSL as a “criminal street gang” founded in 2012 with an affiliation with the Bloods.

While his living arrangements sound like a stereotypical jail cell, his attorney says the conditions violate Young Thug’s Constitutional rights–in particular, the 8th and 14th Amendments.

The “Lifestyle” rappers attorneys filed a motion for bond on Tuesday (May 10), but have yet to receive a date. His lawyers had this to say:

“The failure to schedule a bond hearing for this innocent man, coupled with the inhumane and unconstitutional treatment of Mr. Williams, mandates that this Honorable Court grant bond until a hearing can be held.”

They’re asking that,

“Williams is not held in isolation and that he be given access to televisions, windows, showers and other surroundings that pretrial detainees typically receive.”

The judge has yet to rule on Thug’s motion.
