Tiny Pee Wee

The Georgia Supreme Court will hear the appeal of a man who shot up rapper Lil Wayne's tour bus in April 2015. Jimmy Winfrey, aka Pee Wee Roscoe, was indicted on 27 charges, including gang violence and weapons possession. Prosecutors offered him 2 plea deals, both of which he denied, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Prosecutors say Winfrey got into a verbal altercation with members of Lil Wayne's entourage outside Compound nightclub in Atlanta, where Wayne was performing in 2015.

After Wayne's tour bus left the nightclub, Winfrey, who was driving a white Camaro, pulled up alongside the bus and opened fire as retaliation in a bloods gang dispute.

Winfrey is appealing his 10-year prison sentence and conviction claiming the original judge coerced him to accept a plea deal he didn't want.

Winfrey, who was tour manager for rapper Young Thug, reportedly told police he shot up the bus to increase his status within the Bloods gang.

In his appeal, Winfrey says he was hesitant to plea to a gang charge because of the impact it might have on his chances of parole later.

“This opportunity is going away. Go to trial and you get convicted, there’s not going to be any of me being concerned about when you parole out,” the judge reportedly told Winfrey.

His appeal attorneys say that Winfrey’s decision to take his chances with a jury was "thwarted when the trial judge engaged Winfrey directly, expressed distaste for the charges” and “highlighted an extreme sentence” to “dissuade Winfrey from his not guilty plea.”

Winfrey was a troubled teenage rapper when rapper T.I. Harris took him under his wing. He was featured prominently in T.I.'s reality TV show "T.I.'s Road To Redemption" on MTV in 2009.

Winfrey's appeal case is set for oral argument during the Supreme Court's 10 a.m. session today.

    Article's confusing. Says prosecutors offered him 2 plea deals, which he denies. As in it never happened, or he rejected them? Then it says he was convicted & is serving 10 years, but appealing his sentence b/c he was coerced into a plea?

    Again I have to ask why do people commit a crime and then get scared when it's time to go to jail? Then they either want a "get out of jail free" card or they try to escape. Why? You knew what you were doing was against the law and if you're not caught right away you eventually will be caught. So umm, why? Did this motha hunchey think he was above the law?

    Shot up the tour bus FOR WHAT???!!! Go shoot up George Zimmerman or Sandra Bland's murderer or Sam Dubose's murderer. Matter of fact, I have HIS address, but I'm not a gun owner. Go shoot those folks up. Now you sitting there looking dumb as fukk because you're stupid and seeing that "yo boy's" can't get you the freedom you thought you'd have by doing dumbsh!t.
    Are yo homies still loyal while you locked down?

    I believe he was coerced into a plea deal. That happens a lot to young black men, who don’t stand a chance when their lawyer, the judge and the prosecutor are working together to give him the maximum jail time for the least bit of their effort. Black men aren’t presumed innocent they are presumed guilty, and the lawyers make them think they are doing them a favor by giving them “40 years with possibility of parole” vs. “40 years without parole” because the judge gets to decide that. The system is corrupt. Forget immigration reform, they need to reform the justice system.

    He had his chance and messed it up for his gang affiliation. They probably are protecting him in the system since, in part, is where it originated.
