Charges Against YSL Polo Dropped After Displaying Erratic Behavior, Murder Conviction

The district attorney’s office announced the news on Tuesday.

The charges against YSL Polo, a member of Young Thug’s YSL collective, have reportedly been dropped.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the action will result in Polo no longer being a defendant in the RICO trial following his separate murder conviction. On Tuesday (September 12), Prosecutor Adriane Love revealed that the District Attorney’s office will no longer pursue the two counts against Polo, born Cordarius Dorsey.

Young Thug’s Lawyer Seeking To Remove YSL Polo From RICO Trial Over Erratic Behavior In Court

Earlier this month, Young Thug’s legal team filed a motion to remove Polo from the rapper’s RICO trial after he was witnessed acting erratically during court proceedings. Attorney Brian Steel filed the appeal on September 1 to have the Atlanta native’s affiliate removed from the trial due to his actions inside the courtroom that include “using movements with his hands, threatening the prosecutors as well as the jurors.” Additionally, Steel claimed those actions would affect "Thug's constitutional right to a fair trial that is not prejudiced."

In footage from court proceedings on August 31, Polo can be seen moving his hands and making several gestures with his head. Subsequently, Judge Ural Glanville and Polo’s attorney, Suri Chadha Jimenez, met at another hearing to assess the competency of the latter’s client. Judge Glanville has stated he doesn’t believe YSL Polo is attempting to seek attention through his behavior.
