The rapper and those he was arrested with will face trial in two groups.
Bobby Shmurda’s trial has been pushed back to May 11, according to XXL. His original trial date was February 22.
Kati Cornell, the Director of Public Information at the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor in New York, told the publication that Judge Abraham Clott separated the cases of the “Hot Nigga” rapper and those of the members of his GS9 crew, who were arrested on weapons and murder charges in December of 2014.
Shmurda, born Ackquille Pollard, is slated to appear in court May 11 with Rowdy Rebel, whose given name is Chad Marshall. Others scheduled to be tried in the group are Santino Boderick, who is known as “Cueno,” and Nicolas McCoy, who goes by the name “Montana Flea” or “Monty.”
Rashid Derrisant, known as “Rasha” or “Jordan 23,” and Alex “A-Rod” Crandon are set to face trial on the original February 22 date.
