Max B Prison Sentence Upheld Parole Set for 2042
A New Jersey court has upheld the conviction of Harlem rapper Max B.
The state appeals hearing upheld the conviction stemming from Max B’s role in a Fort Lee hotel murder.
According to court documents Max B won’t be eligible for parole for another 30 years, for his part in masterminding a robbery at the Fort Lee Holiday Inn on Route 4, that left a man shot dead.
If the conviction is upheld, Max B won’t leave Trenton State Penitentiary until 2042.
In 2009 Max B, born Charly Wingate, 34, was sentenced to 75 years in 2009 after being convicted of numerous charges, including murder, kidnapping and armed robbery.
Despite the fact that he wasn’t at the hotel, prosecutors said Max B set up the robbery and murder, by getting his step brother and girlfriend to commit the crime.
Max B had already served 8 years in prison when he was released in 2005.
