Young Thug to remain in jail until 2023 trial after bond is denied for third time

The rapper was arrested in May and indicted for conspiring to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, Billboard reports. In the indictment, Young Thug - whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams - was accused of gang activity. Williams has been hit with seven more felony charges since then, including possession of controlled substances with intent to distribute and possession of unidentified illegal guns, such as a machine gun and sawed-off shotgun. Williams was originally denied bond over fears he would intimidate witnesses in the case, meaning the rapper would have to stay in jail until his official trial date.
