Judge Presiding Over Young Thug’s YSL RICO Case Faces Calls For His Removal

Judge Ural Glanville

Judge Ural Glanville, overseeing Fulton County DA Fani Willis’ RICO case against alleged Young Slime Life (YSL) gang members, is under scrutiny for a contentious clash with defense attorney Brian Steel.

Glanville held Steel in criminal contempt after Steel refused to disclose the source of information about a private meeting involving Glanville, prosecutors, and state witness Kenneth Copeland, aka Lil Woody.

The Georgia Supreme Court intervened, halting Steel’s 20-day sentence pending appeal.

This incident has spurred calls for Glanville’s recusal from the trial, including a motion from attorney Doug Weinstein, representing Deamonte Kendrick, alias Yak Gotti, which Glanville denied.

Legal experts argue Glanville’s actions necessitate recusal, criticizing his handling of the contempt issue as improper and biased.

The trial, centering on RICO charges against Young Thug and others, remains embattled amid judicial controversies and legal challenges.
