Nipsey Hussle’s Alleged Killer Wants Bail Reduction
Written by Rika C on March 29, 2021
The man who fatally shot Nipsey Hussle is asking for a reduction on his $6.5 million bail and claims he’s not a danger to the public.
Eric Holder Jr. appeared in court Thursday and his public defender Lowynn Young stated she filed a bail reduction motion for Holder. She said that a $4 million bail would be better suited for her client as it would ease concerns for the court and District Attorney. Additionally, the paperwork claims Holder is not a risk to the public because he doesn’t have a passport and he has close family within the community. Prosecutors have until March 30 to respond to the motion as per Judge Curtis B. Rappe and Holder’s follow-up trial is scheduled for April 6th. On March 31, 201, Holder approached Nipsey Hussle at his Marathon Clothing store where he was meeting and greeting fans. The men had a conversation in relation to Hussle accusing Holder of snitching. Holder left the storefront and came back with several guns and allegedly fired multiple shots at the rapper. Holder has been indicted on one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder, and a weapons charge. In a previous hearing, he has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
