Man Who Allegedly Shot Up Lil Wayne’s Tour Bus Has Had His 20-Year Sentence Overturned

Man Who Allegedly Shot Up Lil Wayne Tour Bus Has Had His 20-Year Sentence Overturned

Back in 2015, Jimmy Carlton Winfrey aka Peewee Roscoe pleaded guilty to the shooting at Lil Wayne‘s tour bus outside of Compound nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia on April 25th.

Peewee was served with a 20-year sentence (10 years in prison and 10 years on probation), but according to a new report by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, he has had his sentence overturned.

The good friend of T.I., Birdman and Young Thug appealed his sentence in February this year by claiming the Cobb County judge, Mary Staley Clark, “pushed” him into accepting a plea deal that he had previously declined by allegedly threatening him with a harder sentence.

Winfrey will now remain locked up behind bars while his case goes back to the Cobb County State Court to start over again!

Jimmy Winfrey Receives A 20 Year Sentence For Shooting At Lil Wayne Tour Bus

Jimmy Carlton Winfrey aka Peewee Roscoe has pleaded guilty to the shooting at Lil Wayne‘s tour bus outside of Compound nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia back on April 25th.

According to TMZ, the judge sentenced Jimmy Winfrey, who is good friends with Young Thug and T.I., to 20-years (10-years in prison and 10-years on probation)!

Both Birdman and Thug were named in an indictment alleging that they were involved in this tour bus shooting, but they have both come out and said that they had nothing to do with it.

Do you think the punishment is reasonable?
