Remy Ma's Sentencing Pushed Back To May

A month after being found guilty on four counts of assault, Bronx-bred rapper Remy Ma's fate still hangs in the balance as sentencing for her criminal trial has been adjourned until next month. According to Remy's attorney, Ivan Fisher, the Grammy nominated rapper's sentence date, which was initially set for April 23, was rescheduled until May 13 at 10 a.m.

On March 27 a Manhattan jury convicted Remy (born Reminisce Smith) of first-degree assault and weapons charges for shooting her former friend, Makeda Barnes-Joseph, in the abdomen last July in a beef over the rapper's missing $3,000.

In a plea to her fans via MySpace, Remy's page posted a message of endorsement asking admirers to send nice letters about the Bronx-bombshell to Judge Rena Uviller in hopes their voice will help shorten the 25-year sentence the rapper faces.

Despite the grim outlook, Fisher and his defense team plan to appeal the assault charges and are optimistic their motion will go to trial and Remy will be acquitted.

In related news, Remy's femcee brethren Foxy Brown, was released from prison last Friday (April 18) after serving 8 months for violating her probation in connection with a 2004 assault charge.
