Gangster rapper Camrin “C Blu” Williams, 16, allegedly shot and wounded NYPD officer Kaseem Pennant, 27.
Williams, who was already on probation, was arrested on January 18th and charged with assault and unlawful firearm possession. Yesterday, he walked out of a detention center after paying $15k to secure a $250k bond. The $15k came from money he received from a record deal with Interscope Records, part of the Universal Music Group.
Bronx Supreme Court Justice Denis Boyle, who is already notorious for his leniency with dangerous suspects, refused requests from prosecutors to raise his bond. Last year, Judge Boyle was accused of allowing at least two murders to happen by pampering violent criminals. He helped Alberto Ramirez, a dangerous 16-year-old, get out of custody by reducing his cash bail from $75k to $10k, over the objections of prosecutors. Shortly after that, Ramirez was charged with murdering 34-year-old Eric Velasquez. He also refused to give Steven Mendez any prison time for armed robbery. Prosecutors requested four years, and Boyle gave him probation instead. Shortly after that Mendez was charged with murdering Saikou Koma, a 21 year old college student.
