Lil Durk Granted $250K Bond While Waiting for Attempted Murder Trial

Facing five five felonies in relation to an Atlanta shooting in early February, the 'Downfall' rapper avoids house arrest, but is banned from going outdoors from 11 PM until 7 AM.

AceShowbiz - Rapper Lil Durk has caught a minor break in his attempted murder case after he was granted bond.

The "Like Me" star, real name Durk Derrick Banks, is facing five five felonies in relation to a shooting which took place outside The Varsity restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia in early February, when a man was shot in the leg.

The MC, who was arrested in late May, appeared in a Fulton County court last week (June 14), when the judge declared he be held without bond until his next pre-trial hearing in July, after ruling authorities had probable cause to charge him with the attempted murder count as he was allegedly caught on surveillance camera footage firing a gun at the victim from a car.

However, on Thursday, June 20, Durk's lawyers successfully argued the case for their client to be released on bond until his trial, insisting he is not a flight risk.

The judge agreed, and set his bond at $250,000 (£197,000), which he is expected to post on Friday.

According to TMZ, Durk will not be placed under house arrest, but will have to stick to a strict curfew, banning him from going outdoors from 11 pm until 7 am.

The rapper, who previously served time for a weapons charge in 2011, had previously insisted he was innocent.

He is facing charges of criminal intent to commit murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and associating with a criminal street gang to participate in a crime.
