ATLANTA, GA – PeeWee Roscoe, the man arrested for firing multiple gun shots at Lil Wayne’s tour bus in April 2015, has reportedly had his conviction overturned.
Roscoe pleaded guilty to the shooting a few months after the incident and received 10 years in prison. But now, the Supreme Court of Georgia has overturned his conviction after they learned Cobb Superior Court Judge Mary Staley Clark overstepped her bounds by pushing him to take the plea deal.
According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the judge explained to Roscoe that the sentencing could be harsher if he went to court.
“This opportunity is going away,” she said. “Go to trial and you get convicted, there’s not going to be any of me being concerned about when you parole out. Whatever they say you’re guilty of, I’m going to sentence you, and I’m not going to worry about when you get out of jail because it’s not my concern.”
