Trayvon Newsome, one of the men accused of murdering Xxxtentacion, is hoping a judge will grant him bail. According to reliable sources, his lawyer has filed documents requesting a judge set bail for his client. The “Defendant is presently being denied bond,” his lawyer argued in court documents obtained by The Blast. The “Defendant is entitled to bond as a matter or right, unless proof is evidence and the presumption of guilt is great.”
Newsome’s lawyer contends his client is permitted to have a pre-trial release on bond. Newsome has been behind bars since August 7, 2018, when he surrendered to police and was booked on charges of first-degree murder and robbery with a deadly weapon.
Newsome is one of four suspects in the Xxxtentacion homicide case. Robert Allen, Michael Boatwright and Dedrick Williams have also been charged with first-degree murder. An indictment identified Newsome and Boatwright as the gunmen. Xxxtentacion was shot and killed in Deerfield Beach, Florida on June 18, 2018. He was 20 years old
