The Trial of the alleged killer of Nipsey Hussle has been put on hold after a razor blade attack on him in jail, according to his lawyer.
The trial for the murder of Los Angeles rapper Nipsey Hussle has been postponed following an attack on the man accused of his murder.
According to public defender Aaron Jansen, Eric Holder Jr. was “assaulted by many individuals” in a detention holding cell while awaiting transport to court.
“Two convicts attacked him and thrashed him. The back of his skull was slashed with a razor and he had three staples as a result. He had a swollen face and a swollen eye “Holder had an MRI following the alleged incident, according to Jansen, who spoke to Rolling Stone and NBC News separately.
Final arguments have been postponed until Thursday due to the alleged attack on Holder, according to ABC7. The trial began earlier this month, according to The New York Times.
Holder, a want tobe rapper, was arrested and charged in May of this year. As many as ten shots are said to have struck Hussle, according to prosecutors. Hussle was found with 11 gunshot wounds, according to the medical examiner, although two of the wounds may have been inflicted by the same bullet.
Despite the fact that there was no clear motivation for the attack, the question was not raised in the courtroom. During Holder’s trial, he did not take the stand. On the defense side, a private investigator and gang specialist testified that the “snitching” charges that are alleged to have motivated the shooting were significant enough to warrant a trial.
Everybody in the neighborhood knows what it means to be a “snitch,” according to the investigator, Robert Freeman. There were many similarities between Hussle and Holder’s upbringing in the Rollin’ 60s neighborhood of South Los Angeles and the gang they belonged to.
As Jansen did not name Hussle, he inquired if a revered individual in the group’s ranks could be considered an informant. As Freeman put it, “If they’re an OG or regarded upon, whatever they say is almost gold in the streets.
