Defendant Bradford Cohen said that he had gone into plea discussions because “there have been changes in the case that I believe have altered the nature of the case.”

Shiesty is now out on bond. After the sneakers were delivered to Shiesty, the sneaker transaction turned sour. According to reports, the rapper brandished a Draco at the victim and ordered that he place the footwear in the trunk of the vehicle. Afterward, Shiesty’s co-defendant jumped out of the car and tried to rob the victim of his valuables. Shiesty is accused of shooting the victim in the buttocks when he retaliated against him. He and his co-defendant both discharged their weapons, striking a guy in the hip with one of them.

In the past, BIG30, a Memphis rapper who grew up with Shiesty, has said that there is no possibility that he would spend the rest of his life in jail. According to the way things are going, his change of plea may signal that he is willing to accept a plea bargain with the government in exchange for a shorter sentence.
