    The judge in the YSL Rico trial has hit yet another delay.

    The YSL Rico trial is continuing to experience delays. Despite being scheduled to begin in January, jury selection is still ongoing. As previously reported a potential juror skipped court and opted for the Dominican Republic before being the presiding judge in the case, Judge Glanville reprimanded them by making them write a research paper. A second juror was given a warning after texting a news reporter about the selection process, an just last week another juror was sentenced to three days in jail for recording court proceedings on her cell phone.

    Now another delay has come after one of Young Thug’s co-defendants claimed he received legal advice from Donald Trump. According to the AJC, Jayden Myrick filed a request to represent himself in the upcoming trial but Judge Ural Glanville immediately began to question the mental state of the 22-year-old. Myrick claimed he had been studying law and was in contact with Donald Trump, President Biden, and Senator Jon Ossoff hence why he felt confident in representing himself.

    “I’m not the regular inmate, I be with Joe Biden and Donald Trump and they be talking to me,” Myrick said. “Donald Trump is going to get me out.”

    Judge Glanville has refused to grant the request for self-representation until Myrick completes a mental evaluation. If the evaluation reveals he is mentally competent,l it’s likely his request will be granted. It’s worth noting that Myrick is already serving a life sentence for a 2018 murder outside of an Atlanta country club.

    Judge Ural Glanville is going to hold off on determining whether or not Jayden Myrick can represent himself. He has ordered a mental health evaluation on Myrick to determine whether he is competent to stand trial. #YSL #YoungThug
