One of the four men charged with the shooting murder of XXXTentacion is demands the court give him 15K to hire his own crime scene expert!
Dedrick Williams recently filed court documents requesting to hire a forensic expert in his defense for his case for the murder of XXXTentacion. His reason is that he has no income and therefore cannot afford the expert himself. Williams insists there is a “genuine issue” in the case that requires extra assistance from an expert witness. His lawyer says his client will not have a fair chance in the trial if he is denied the expert.
Williams apparently has a history of similar behavior because he previously requested $10,000 to hire a private investigator back in August 2018. Interestingly enough, that request was granted along with an additional $20,000 for an electronic evidence expert to scan cell tower analysis and computer and cell phone forensics. Three months later, he asked for another $10,000 for a gang expert which was granted.
Meanwhile, court documents were filed last month stating the late rapper’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, wanted the Black BMW i8 her son was killed in returned. The vehicle was kept in storage by a facility owned by the Broward Sheriff’s Office. The state attorney said they have no issue returning the vehicle and that the suspect’s lawyers have until February 28th to finish their investigation.
