Young Thug’s Attorney Taken Into Custody During YSL RICO Trial

Young Thug‘s attorney has been taken into custody and held in contempt during court proceedings for the ongoing YSL RICO case.

According to a report by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Monday (June 10), Brian Steel confronted Judge Ural Glanville about a private conversation reportedly held between Glanville, prosecutors and one of the state’s star witnesses before court that morning.

When questioned about how he learned of the meeting, Steel refused to share his source and was thus escorted out of the courtroom.

“You got some information you shouldn’t have gotten,” Glanville said to Steel before directing courtroom deputies to take him into custody.

Steel then told the judge that he’s “not supposed to have communication with a witness who’s been sworn” in reference to Kenneth Copeland, who spent the weekend in jail after refusing to testify on Friday (June 7) despite having an immunity deal that is contingent on his testimony.

However, he appeared on the witness stand on Monday. The meeting that morning was apparently why he changed his mind, which Steel argued he should have been present for.

After he was removed, DA Adriane Love asked that he be allowed back into the courtroom for the remainder of the day’s proceedings — he was eventually let back in.

However, Glanvville still plans to hold him in contempt if he does not disclose his source by the end of the business day.

As previously reported, Copeland (aka. Lil Woody) took the stand last week and invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.

He did so even for the most basic questions, such as “How old are you?” When he refused to comply, Judge Glanville ordered him to be held in willful contempt of court until Monday since the prosecution had already offered him an immunity deal in exchange for his testimony against Thug.

In response, Brian Steel filed a motion for a mistrial.
