Jimmy Henchman has been found guilty of a murder-for-hire case which claimed the life of an associate of 50 Cent and G-Unit.
The former hip hop mogul, also known as James Rosemond, is currently in prison on a life sentence for a 2014 murder-for-hire conviction. involving the 2009 killing of 50 Cent’s associate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher. Henchman had a miss trial in 2014 resulting from a hung jury, but the following year he was convicted of the same charge. In 2016, a judge granted him a new trial on the grounds that the trial was unfair. But now he is convicted for the same case for the second time, the New York Post reported.
On Tuesday of this week, a federal jury convicted Henchman for the second time and he will likely get a life sentence. The prosecution argued that Henchman hired men to kill Lowell Fletcher in retaliation for beating up his son in 2007. Former G-Unit rapper Tony Yayo and his crew reportedly got into a confrontation with Henchman’s 14-year-old son who was wearing a T-Shirt with a logo of Game’s management. Henchman use to manage The Game before his legal troubles. Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher admitted to assaulting the kid and went to prison for it. He was released in 2009 and two weeks later he was shot dead in the Bronx.
Jimmy Henchman denied killing Fletcher, but admitted that he did hire some men to “do something to him.” He also said that he will appeal the conviction. Rosemond son did an interview some years later saying that he had no idea what was going on and felt like he never deserved to be assaulted by four grown men just for wearing a T-Shirt representing his father’s company. Seems the hip hop executive wasn’t satisfied with Fletcher serving prison time and possibly wanted to get revenge.
