Pop Smoke’s killer pleads guilty and is sentenced to four years in juvenile treatment facility

251

One of the four people accused of killing Pop Smoke has pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter and home invasion robbery.

Due to his status as a minor at the time of the crime.

Judge J. Christopher Smith sentenced the now 20-year-old defendant to 4 years and 2 months in a juvenile treatment facility on Thursday after the man pled guilty to entering the Hollywood Hills mansion to rob the late rapper before things ended in bloodshed.

His name has also been withheld throughout the trial due to that status.

The L.A. Times reports the judge refused to reduce his sentence by 2 years and 8 months — the time he’s already spent behind bars — and warned the man he could remain in juvenile custody until he was 25.

His attorney previously argued his client suffered from a learning disability that made him incapable to stand trial.

Pop Smoke (born Bashar Barakah Jackson) was shot and killed in February 2020 during a robbery inside of a Hollywood Hills mansion erupted in gunfire.

Three other defendants … 2 juveniles and Corey Walker are also charged, but have not yet stood trial.
