Attorney for YSL defendant says plea deal reports made by defendant’s father are false

ATTORNEY

An attorney for a defendant charged in the sweeping YSL RICO case against hip hop superstar Young Thug and more than a dozen of his alleged associates told Channel 2 Action News reports that prosecutors offered her client a plea deal in exchange for his testimony against the rapper are completely false.

In a text message sent to Channel 2′s Michael Seiden, Angela D’Williams issued the following response on behalf of her client Rodaluis “Lil Rod” Ryan:

“This is a false statement. Had any offer been given to my client, the State would’ve went through me since Mr. Ryan is represented by counsel,” she texted.”

D’Williams comments came after a video of Ryan’s father surfaced on social media Monday.

“Miss (Fani) Willis went down to that jail and told my son if he ever! Listen to what I say! I ain’t telling you what I heard! I’m telling you what I know! If he say ‘(Young) Thug gave him $10,000 to help that boy, miss Willis let you out of jail,’” he exclaimed.

Channel 2 Action News is working to determine when the video was recorded.

Channel 2 Action News has also reached out to the District Attorney’s office for comment.
