Prosecution’s Key Witness In YSL’s RICO Trial, Lil Woody, Thrown In Jail After Refusing to Testify

Kenneth Copeland, Lil Woody, Young Thug

In a dramatic twist on day 87th of the Young Thug and YSL RICO trial, one of the prosecution’s key witness Kenneth Copeland, also known as Lil Woody, found himself in handcuffs and headed to jail after staunchly refusing to testify on behalf of the prosecution.

The courtroom buzzed with tension as Copeland invoked the Fifth Amendment, invoking his right against self-incrimination when questioned by prosecutors.

“I’m an adult. I plead the Fifth,” Copeland defiantly declared, setting off a chain of events that led to his arrest on the stand and a contempt of court charge.

The unexpected turn of events added yet another layer of intrigue to the already riveting trial, which has captivated audiences with its high-profile cast and complex legal drama.

Copeland, who had previously been granted immunity in exchange for his testimony against Thug, now finds himself behind bars on contempt charges until Monday, leaving legal observers and trial spectators on edge as they await the next chapter in this legal saga.

The prosecution did stress that Copeland will remain in jail until the end of the trial, which could run for several months.

The news of Copeland’s refusal to testify comes hot on the heels of YFN Lucci’s lawyer’s confirmation that the rapper will not be taking the stand against Young Thug.

Quashing rumors and speculation, the rapper’s attorney made it unequivocally clear:

“Rayshawn Bennett (YFN Lucci) will not be a witness in the YSL case,” according to Complex.

With tensions running high and the stakes higher than ever, the trial, which commenced last November, has already made its mark in Georgia’s legal history as the longest in the state’s records.

Yet, despite its duration, the trial’s conclusion remains shrouded in uncertainty, leaving observers wondering when the final gavel will fall.

For Thug, the charges loom large, including allegations of conspiracy to violate the RICO Act, participation in criminal street gang activity, violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act, and possession of a machine gun.

All eyes remain fixed on the courtroom, awaiting the next twist in this gripping legal saga.
