Rapper remains in jail after bond hearing

November 21, 2005

Albany-- One half of a rap duo from Albany remains in jail after a bond hearing at the Dougherty County Jail.

Darion Crawford known as "Smoke" from Field Mob has been in the Dougherty County Jail since October 18th. He's being held for violating his probation from 2002 convictions on cocaine posession and driving on a suspended license. On Monday, he was ordered to serve 45 days in jail with credit for time served since October.

He'll also perform eight days of public service coordinated by the district attorney. That public service may possibly include speaking about anti-truancy. Crawford's lawyers are satisfied with the sentence. "So much was riding his future. His financial success for his family, the people who made a commitment to him as an artist," says Attorney Pete Donaldson.

"The judge was extremely fair in the sentence that he rendered, giving Darion another opportunity," says Attorney Akil Secret.

Rap star Ludacris, who signed Field Mob to his record label was in court for support. Attorney Pete Donaldson says Crawford didn't tell the label of his legal troubles for fear of losing his record deal. The label has strict guidelines when it comes to any artists using drugs or having legal trouble. They found out when Field Mob shot a video in Albany last month but are sticking it out and backing their artist up throughout the ordeal.
