Irving and Christopher LorenzoRap moguls Irving and Christopher Lorenzo are found not guilty of laundering money for the notorious crack kingpin Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff. The Lorenzo brothers were accused of laundering over $1 million in drug money for Kenneth in exchange for serving as the Lorenzos’ protector and enforcer.

After the not guilty verdict was announced the crowd erupted in joyful excitement. Irving shouted “We did it! We did it!” after the verdict. Also present at the trial were hip-hop stars including Jay-Z, Russell Simmons, Ja Rule and Ashanti. Both brothers could have faced 20 years in prison if convicted.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sean Haran said he would respect the jury’s verdict.

The Lorenzos’ attorney Gerald Shargel says:

There’s nothing illegal about knowing a criminal, about socializing with a criminal, even doing business with a criminal, unless you commit a crime.

Even if Supreme McGriff was the biggest drug dealer in the world, and even if ‘Crime Partners’ was the worst film in the history of American entertainment, there is nothing illegal about giving backing to a movie
