Rapper Trick Daddy Arrested

The South Florida rapper Trick Daddy has chosen to maintain a low profile since we last reported on his arrest occurring in Broward County. The arrest was carried out by the Broward County Drug Task Force which is a specialized unit.

According to Criminal Defense Lawyer William Moore, Broward Sheriff’s deputies had obtained a warrant based upon less than sufficient evidence. Specifically, questionable indicators or cues from a service dog. The warrant from which all of the states evidence regarding the firearm and cocaine possession will most definitely be challenged by way of an appropriate motion to suppress in the up-and-coming weeks.

Moore had stated on Crime-Talk that all evidence would be deemed in admissible once it is established that the obtaining of any warrant was not founded upon necessary facts and allegations that meet the threshold which would otherwise want an intrusion on Trick Daddy’s rights.

Since the arrest, which occurred in early April of this year, the rapper has maintained a low profile refusing to divulge any information about the allegations whatsoever. The rapper’s record company Slip N Slide Records has also declined to take advantage of any publicity that the Drug/Firearm arrest may have otherwise bestowed upon them.

The potential for severe and strict punishment is significant considering not only the charges filed by the Broward County State Attorney’s Office but also due to the county itself. Broward County is considered one of the toughest jurisdictions in Florida from a prosecutorial standpoint. Both elected officials and law enforcement credit the no-nonsense approach to criminal justice as being the reason for record low crime statistics. See Sun Sentinel Article on Broward’s Record Low Crime Statistics. The crime rate in Broward County started to drastically decline sometime in 2011.

Apparently, the crime rate is lower now than it has been in 43 years. Somehow, I don’t think that fact means much to Trick, however.

Trick Daddy is best known for his 2001 single ‘I’m a thug’ – throughout his career Trick has released eight records and has worked with artists by the likes of Pit Bull, Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, C Lo Green and Ludacris.

William Moore saves the day once again... I can’t thank him enough for helping me get my life back on track...You’ll be glad he’s on your defense team, I guarantee it. Eric Bailey
William is an amazing lawyer on the first day he took my case from a felony to a misdemeanor. He always answered my calls and text messages, never a problem. He was always the one in court not sending someone else, unlike my last lawyer. 10/10 would recommend. If I ever have any other problems, he will be the first person I call. Shane B.
