Derissant was convicted on 22 counts including conspiracy in the second and fourth degrees, murder in the second degree, attempted murder in the second degree, reckless endangerment in the first degree, assault in the first and second degrees, attempted assault in the first degree, criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree and criminal use of a firearm in the first degree.
Bridget G. Brennan, New York City's Special Narcotics Prosecutor announced Derissant's sentencing today (May 17).
"The sentence imposed today reflects the terror that the defendant's crimes instilled in his own community, and wherever else he engaged in wanton violence to settle scores," Brennan said in a press release. "It also underscored the value of the lives lost and tragically damaged."
Crandon, who faced trial alongside Derissant and was convicted as well, had his sentencing postponed. There are charges currently pending against 19 other members and associates of GS9 named in the same indictment as Derissant and Crandon.
Bobby Shmurda's case has still not gone to trial. The Brooklyn rapper's trial was pushed back yet again this time to Sept. 12 after Shmurda's attorney as well as three other defendants requested and were granted a postponement.
