Appearing in New York court on yesterday (January 13), Trevell “G-Dep” Coleman formally entered a ‘not guilty’ plea in the shooting death of John Henkel. G-Dep was silent except for entering his plea, but he did acknowledge the few supporters that were in the courtroom with a smile. His attorney, Anthony Ricco, explained hat G-Dep still admits to shooting Henkel in October of 1993, and that the plea was a procedural move.
But he added that pleading not guilty gives him to time to look over G-Dep’s confession and determine whether or not the rapper made the statement under the influence of drugs.
“We want to make sure what we’re dealing with the reality of what actually happened that night,” Ricco said. According to the Wall Street Journal, G-Dep has struggled with PCP addiction for years.
Ricco said he expects to reach a plea deal with the district attorney’s office.
