“Rapper Pooh Shiesty is going away for a 5-plus year stretch for a South Florida shootout — and, considering what he could have gotten, he’s actually happy with that number.
Pooh, whose real name is Lontrell Williams, was facing more than 8 years in prison, if prosecutors got their way — but his attorney, Bradford Cohen, tells TMZ … the government’s calculations were off.
Cohen says they asked for no more than 63 months, which is exactly what the judge gave him.Pooh was busted for an October 2020 shootout involving himself and several other men. The incident went down in a Miami-area condo parking lot … and it left 2 men injured.Police had surveillance video that showed all the violence play out, with Pooh armed with an assault rifle in the middle of the action … as he sat in a McLaren sports car.
He eventually plead guilty to one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.
Cohen tells us, “We are going to file a motion for any time he spent in state prison on the same crime to get him additional credit for time served.”
UPDATE 5:51 PM PT — In an earlier version of this post, we referenced a separate shooting, from June 2021, allegedly involving Pooh Sheisty. That is not the incident for which he was sentenced to 63 months.”
