DatWAV reported last month, Both Derissant & another GS9 affiliate, Alex Crandon, were convicted of murder, attempted murder and conspiracy. They were found guilty of the February 2013 murder of a rival gang member who was 19 years of age. New York City’s Special Narcotics Prosecutor, Bridget G. Brennan, broadcasted Derissant’s prison setence today.
She stated, “The sentence imposed today reflects the terror that the defendant’s crimes instilled in his own community, and wherever else he engaged in wanton violence to settle scores,” “It also underscored the value of the lives lost and tragically damaged.”
Rashid Derissant was convicted on 22 counts including:
Conspiracy in the second and fourth degrees
Murder in the second degree
Attempted murder in the second degree
Reckless endangerment in the first degree
Assault in the first and second degrees

The other GS9 member, Alex Crandon, sentence was postponed. 19 other members of GS9 are awaiting sentencing in the same indictment that Crandon & Derissant are being charged in.
Bobby Shmurda still has yet to go to trail, his trail was recently postponed once again until September 12th.
