(FreshAsFrankie) Texas-born rapper Tay-K was scheduled to appear in court today (August 31), but his date was postponed. Tay-K, born Tamor McIntyre, is facing capital murder charges, which carries a life imprisonment sentence or the death penalty.
Tay-K’s appearance was postponed due to lack of evidence. His lawyer, James McMillan, spoke earlier this week about Tay-K’s case. McMillan, who previously represented Kodak Black, sai: “The Race” rapper “has this dire situation on his back, but this opportunity on the other hand. I’m tasked with trying to make sure we maximize his opportunities so he can mount as strong of a criminal defense as possible.”
New York Times reporter Joe Coscarelli spoke to McMillan on Wednesday (August 30), and he was told that Tay-K would be tried as an adult in the case. The judge told Tay-K that the decision to move the case to adult court had no bearing of his guilt or innocence the case, and added that officers testified that there was no evidence that the rapper had weapons or engaged in any violent acts. McMillan went on to say that he believes Tay-K will be exonerated on all the charges.
