Sealing the Truth.
The lawyer for accused Nipsey Hussle killer Eric Holder has requested that the transcripts from his grand jury hearing be sealed until after the trial to ensure a fair and impartial ruling.
The transcripts stem from the 23-member grand jury panel that returned a six-count indictment against Holder, including one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder, one count of assault with a firearm, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.
Holder pled not guilty to all charges and faces life in state prison if convicted for the murder.
Lowynn Young, Holder’s public defender, argued to L.A. County Superior Court Judge Robert J. Perry that releasing the public records would influence their case so much that witnesses and experts might not come forward in Holder’s defense.
It has been over a year since Nipsey Hussle was shot in front of a Hyde Park clothing store. According to court records, Nipsey had accused Holder of snitching.
What do you think his argument holds water?
