One of Chicago’s biggest rap artist, Lil Durk, has been cleared of all gun charges dating back to November of 2014. A Cook County Judge cleared Lil Durk of probation violation on Friday, leading prosecutors to drop his charges altogether. The charges stem from a police search of Lil Durk’s home in 2014, where police found two .45 caliber pistols on his kitchen counter.
Judge Timothy Joyce ruled that prosecutors had indeed proved Lil Durk had knowledge that the guns were in an Chicago-area townhome that he was renting, but didn’t meet the burden of proof that he had “possession and control” of the weapons.
In an Instagram post, Lil Durk thanked his lawyer Sam Adams Jr.
