Lil Durk is a free man, at least for now.
The Chicago rapper, born Durk Derrick Banks, walked out of a Fulton County jail in Atlanta moments ago after posting his $250,000 bond. Fulton County Judge Kevin Farmer granted the rapper bail on Thursday, June 20, after he appeared in court with his attorney. His bail was issued on the condition that he will be required to wear an ankle monitor. He is also barred from going anywhere near guns and must be in his house between the hours of 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. each day of the week.
Lil Durk is also barred from contacts with any witness, therefore no attempt to intimidate the witness or else his bail could be revoked. He should also wear his ankle monitor at all times. The prosecutors in the case argued against granting the rapper bail, but the judge ultimately ruled in Durk’s favor.
Banks is facing charges of attempted murder and weapons possession. If he is convicted, he could be sent to prison for more than 20 years. His father had recently been released from prison after serving a life sentence.
Banks pastor from Chicago also vouched for him to get bond. “I’ve known Derrick in a very tense environment in Chicago and I’ve never witnessed him lashing out,” his pastors said (via WSB TV). “It’s always been smiles and it’s always been jokes. He’s always been a good character.”
