Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer wants break on his $6.5M bail

Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer asks for a break on his $6.5 million bail, says he isn’t a threat

Nipsey Hussle’s suspected murderer is pleading with the court to get his bail decreased just days before the rapper’s second anniversary. Eric Holder’s defense counsel, Lowynn Young, lodged a petition with the court, requesting that his multi-million dollar bail be lowered because he is not a danger to society.

Suspect reappeared in a Los Angeles courthouse on Thursday (March 25), where his public defender announced she filed the bail reduction motion on his behalf, according to the Daily News. According to the public filing, the defendant’s criminal history after sealing and expunging criminal records,  prior to the alleged shooting was limited, with only one felony arrest for carrying a concealed weapon in 2012.  You can click here to know what happens when you’re accused of drug crime in the military.

“Based on the isolated nature of this case, Mr. Holder does not pose a risk of harm to the public,” the court papers state. “Even a reduction of bail down to $4 million should satisfy any concerns by the court and the District Attorney,” attorney Young adds.

Curtis B. Rappé, the presiding judge, has set the next hearing for Tuesday, April 6th, allowing prosecutors more than a week to consider and respond to the motion. As his defense counsel tries to get him out of jail, Eric Holder is currently charged with one count of felon in possession of a weapon, one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder, and two counts of assault with a firearm. If convicted of all charges, he may face life in prison.
