American rapper and singer Lil Durk’s lawyer, Nicole Moorman, is taking the internet by storm after she successfully managed to drop five felony charges against the rapper.
This week it became official that charges including attempted murder have been dropped against Lil Durk related to a 2019 shooting in Atlanta.
The rapper infamously got into trouble with the law in a 2019 shooting case in Georgia.
Along with attempted murder, Banks was facing counts of aggravated assault, participation in criminal street gang activity, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
All of those charges were dismissed in an official filing from the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office last week, citing “prosecutorial discretion.”
The filing read in part: “The facts of this case have been reviewed, and although probable cause existed for the defendants arrest, the decision at this time is not to prosecute.”
As many fans rejoice regarding the rapper’s name being cleared, his attorney Nicole Moorman has gone viral on social media.
Many joked about how they would intentionally commit a felony just to have Nicole Moorman represent them.
