Tru Life Accepts Plea Deal, Sentenced To 10 Years Behind Bars

Former Roc-A-Fella artist Tru Life who is probably best known for his beefs with Mobb Deep & Dipset has just accepted a plea deal and was slapped with a 10 year sentence earlier this morning. Peep the press release below..

Rapper Tru Life was offered a plea deal Wednesday on charges related to the fatal stabbing of a man outside a Murray Hill apartment building nearly two years ago. The rapper, whose real name is Robert Rosado, was allegedly involved in the stabbing death of Christopher Guerrero, 20, during a fight in June 2009. A second man was hospitalized, also with stab wounds, after the alleged incident. The plea deal offered by Assistant District Attorney Linda Ford involved a 10-year sentence for the 34-year-old rapper and 12 years for his brother, Marcus Rosado. Both brothers face second-degree murder, gang assault and assault charges. The deal would require them to waive the opportunity to appeal.

The alleged fight took place at at 330 East 26th St. on June 15, 2009. Investigators said the incident was an extension of a dispute outside Pacha nightclub, at 618 West 46th St., which occurred several hours earlier, around 4 a.m. Robert Rosado’s lawyer, Alan Abramson, said he would discuss the plea deal with his client Wednesday afternoon. If the plea deal is not accepted, the brothers will go to trial on the first Monday in March. The rapper appeared in court Wednesday with a crew cut and neatly-groomed beard, in a dark brown suit and tie. His wife was in the courtroom. Tru Life signed with Jay Z’s label Roc-A-Fella in 2005, according to The New York Times. Roc-A-Fella has since released him from the label. – HHH via DNA
