Due to the conviction, the former Diddy protege faces 15-years-to-life prison.

G.Dep’s lawyer, Anthony Ricco, gave a statement on the conviction, as he said:

“He has a conscience and a heart, and his conscience and his heart brought him to where he is today,” Ricco said after court. “. He’s probably making the most powerful statement a rapper of his era can make, which is to be accountable and to do the right thing.”

Prosecutor for the state still viewed Dep as a threat even though the crime was committed 18 years ago:

“Eighteen years ago, the defendant made a calculated decision to steal from, shoot, and kill an innocent person on the street,”
