Judge Denies Motion for Mistrial in YSL RICO Case

Judge Ural Glanville has denied a motion for a mistrial in the YSL RICO case.

This comes after an attorney representing Jayden Myrick, who is a defendant in the case, argued her client’s Six Amendment right to a fair and impartial jury was ‘violated’ due to discovery material being shared with the media and “other public forms.”

In late February, a three-and-a-half-hour video surfaced of state witness YSL Woody divulging information about Young Thug and others.

“While said evidence may not directly implicate my client, it, along with all of the publicity and courtroom incidents since the start of this trial that has not been the result of any conduct of my client, Jayden Myrick, make it impossible for him to receive a fair trial, as well as a jury that is honestly and truly fair and impartial,” attorney Bernard wrote.

Judge Glanville denied the motion Wednesday but did say he’d allow lawyers to question potential jurors about the video, according to Atlanta Journal-Constitution journalist Jozsef Papp who has been reporting from the courtroom.

The judge also plans to launch an investigation into how the footage made its way online.

Papp reported Judge Glanville then warned that he’ll restrict attorneys to only be able to review discovery information within his chambers if it happened again.
