Rapper Bobby Shmurda's trial has been postponed for a fourth time.
The hip-hop star, real name Ackquille Pollard, 21, has been locked up at a New York correctional facility since December, 2014, following his arrest during a police sting operation in Manhattan.
He was charged with counts of conspiracy, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and more. Pollard, who has been denied bail seven times, was set to attend court in February (16), but the trial was postponed until this week (begs09May16).
However, the court date has now been pushed back until September (16) at the request of Pollard's lawyer, according to XXLMag.com.
Meanwhile, last week (ends06May16), the 21-year-old filed a civil rights lawsuit against officers in the New York Police Department, claiming he was visiting a friend in June, 2014, when police officers entered the home without a search warrant. In the lawsuit, the rapper claimed he has suffered permanent "nervous shock and mental anguish" because of the arrest.
