Earlier in the month, James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond was found guilty by a federal jury of 13 charges in connection with his Rosemond Organization, as federal prosecutors declared that Rosemond used his music management company as a virtual front for a huge drug-trafficking ring.
Now Henchman has been indicted for plotting a 2009 murder of an associate to New York rapper 50 Cent.
As the NY Times Reports, yesterday in a Manhattan courtroom, Jimmy Henchman along with five other men were charged for conspiring to murder 50 Cent associate, Lowell Fletcher, in 2009.
According to the indictment papers, Rosemond and another man hired at least two of the defendants to kill Fletcher in exchange for drugs.
New York police commissioner, Raymond W. Kelly gave statement on Rosemond’s indictment, while noting that the murder of Lowell Fletcher had been in retaliation for an assault of Henchman’s son:
“This has not been a good month for Jimmy the Henchman.”
Jimmy Henchman is currently in federal custody awaiting sentencing for the above mentioned drug trafficking conviction, which he is facing life in prison for.
