In April, three members of a popular Atlanta rap group, Migos, found themselves
in trouble with the law. Police officers arrested the young men after
a performance at Georgia Southern University when less than an ounce of
marijuana, some codeine syrup, and four handguns were allegedly found
in the tour vans.
Although two of the group members were able to post bail after just two
nights in jail, the third is still behind bars. He has prior felony convictions
on his record which are making it difficult for him to find a way out
of jail. Each of the three members retained three different defense attorneys
to represent them in court, with Attorney Cris Schneider acting as the
defense for Quavo, who is already out of jail.

According to interviews with
Rolling Stone, the lawyers were able to significantly weaken the prosecution's count
of the April arrests. Attorney Schneider, who was quoted in a recent
Rolling Stone interview, believes that the arrests were based purely on racial motives.
He said that the police officers and the prosecutor know that neither
the weapons nor the drugs can be conclusively tied to the members of Migos.
Despite the legal trouble, Migos continues working hard and pushing to
achieve new levels of success. Attorney Schneider knows that the outcome
of this case is important to the group and is prepared to do whatever
it takes to reach a satisfactory outcome.
