Back in Jan of this year, Taxstone posted $500,000 bail after pleading not guilty and will be placed on house arrest with restrictions following his arraignment in a Manhattan court on Tuesday (Jan. 17) in connection to the fatal shooting last spring at New York concert venue Irving Plaza, Campbell’s lawyer confirms to Billboard.
Here’s an update on the situation.
According to BOSSIP, a federal grand jury have found sufficient evidence to indict Taxstone, whose real name is Daryl Campbell, on on charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, and receiving a gun through interstate commerce.
Taxstone pleads guilty and faces up to 20 years.
According to reports, While the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office did not charge Campbell, 31, with a federal murder charge, they told Judge Lorna Schofield he brought a firearm to Irving Plaza and “fired one shot that killed Ronald McPhatter” as well as additional shots during the confrontation.
Campbell faces up to 20 years in federal lockup.
