Who is YSL member Shannon Stillwell?

Shannon Stillwell, also known as Shannon Jackson, is getting ready to go to trial in the high-profile YSL gang case.

Prosecutors said that Stillwell and more than a dozen individuals were involved in a variety of illicit activities.

Murder and conspiracy to violate Georgia’s RICO Act are among the charges leveled against the YSL defendants.

According to WSB-TV, eight of the suspected YSL members, including Stillwell and Young Thug, will be tried together, while the others will be tried separately.

According to online accounts, Stillwell is a rapper who goes by the stage name SB.

What did Young Thug’s lawyer request?

On May 9, 2022, Stillwell, Young Thug, and 27 other alleged YSL members were arrested.

Stillwell was released on bond at the time, but a week later, on May 17, he was detained again on a different murder charge in relation with Shymel Drinks’ death, according to Sportskeeda.

He was in the middle of a religious ceremony involving the purported sacrifice of goats when he was arrested for the second time.

The ceremony was videotaped, and Young Thug’s lawyer has asked that it not be revealed to the jury.

His defenders claim that the footage will bias jurors against Stillwell and Young Thug.

According to Yahoo!, there is currently no date scheduled for when a hearing on this motion may be held.

What happened to Young Thug?

Young Thug, a Grammy-nominated rapper, has been imprisoned since his arrest in May 2022.

He was charged with one count of attempted murder and one count of criminal street gang activity at the time.

His arrest followed a grand jury indictment that accused 28 members and associates of his label, YSL Records.

The 56-count indictment states that YSL members were involved in murder, attempted murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, theft, drug dealing, carjacking, and witness intimidation, as well as murder, attempted murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, theft, drug dealing, carjacking, and witness intimidation.

Since then, Young Thug has rejected all claims against him and pled not guilty.

In January 2023, jury selection for his trial began.
