Remy Ma's Appeal Struck Down By Court

Remy Ma's appeal of her conviction was rejected by a Court of Appeals today (February 24th).

Remy Ma was convicted of shooting her friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph in July of 2007, during an argument over $3,000.

The rapper was sentenced to eight years in prison for criminal possession of a weapon.

According to the Associated Press, a court rejected Remy Ma's argument that jurors were not properly informed before the guilty verdict was rendered.

Remy Ma, who is serving her prison time at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women, is slated to be released in 2013.
