Chicago rapper G Herbo has pleaded not guilty to a number of federal charges, including exacerbated identity theft and aiding and abetting a major fraud program, according to the Chicago Tribune. He joined his request via videoconference from a home in Los Angeles. He faces up to six years in prison if convicted in court. Currently he is allowed to stay vacant for a $ 75,000 bond.
Herbo is named along with eight other defendants in an alleged fraud scheme that uses stolen cards and accounts to obtain goods and services such as private jet charters, exotic car rentals, and designer pups. Antonio “T-Glo” Strong, identified in court documents as “the promoter and manager of rappers, particularly in the Chicago area,” has been identified as the leader of the alleged fraud operation.
When Pitchfork reached them, G Herbo representatives made no comment.
