XXXTentacion Jailed, Facing Seven New Felonies

xxxtentacion jailed facing seven new charges

XXXTentacion is back in the slammer.

Following a hearing in a Miami-Dade County courtroom this morning, XXXTentacion, born Jahsey Onfroy, was taken straight to jail after prosecutors slapped him with seven new felony charges stemming from his 2016 domestic violence case.

According to TMZ, the new charges include different degrees of witness tampering and witness harassment. XXX was already facing charges of battery against a pregnant woman and false imprisonment.

Prosecutors believe he threatened his ex-girlfriend who he allegedly beat. Earlier this month, the victim asked for the charges against XXXTentacion to be dropped. Prosecutors grew suspicious after XXX’s team turned in an affidavit that the alleged victim had signed, which resulted in a delay of his trial.

Ultimately, XXX was hauled off to jail after the judge ruled that he violated his bond from his initial arrest. He is being held with no bond. Most likely, XXX will remain in jail until trial. If convicted, he faces decades in prison.
