YNW Melly Charged With Witness Tampering

Florida prosecutors have charged rapper YNW Melly with witness tampering by trying to prevent a key witness didn’t testify at his first murder trial.

Prosecutors allege that Melly, allegedly a member of the Bloods street gang, did it through phone calls made by other jail inmates at his request and letters passed between them to get messages to Blood members on the streets.

According to an arrest warrant, he “along with others,” engaged in “misleading conduct toward another person with the intent to cause or induce (that person) to withhold testimony” during Melly’s first trial, which ended in a mistrial.

The witness did not end up testifying.

YNW Melly is accused of two counts of first-degree murder in the killings Christopher “YNW Juvy” Thomas and Anthony “YNW Sakchaser” Williams in Miramar in 2018, and then conspiring to make it look like a drive-by shooting. YNW Bortlen is also facing trial.

If the witness testifies in his new trial, it may be what the prosecution needs to put him behind bars.
