Last week it was reported that Tru-Life was offered a 10-year plea deal for his role in the 2009 stabbing death of Christopher Guerrero outside a Manhattan apartment building. 

On Wednesday, Tru accepted a plea deal  and was sentenced to eight years in prison.  He plead guilty to second degree gang assault after he was originally charged with second-degree murder, gang assault, and assault.  His brother also plead guilty and recieved a 10-year sentence.  His charges were reduced to first degree manslaughter. 

“As previously reported, the Rosado brothers were arrested for the murder of Christopher Guerrero, and critically injuring Jason Gray on June 15, 2009. Police sources say the men stabbed Guerrero in the stomach and Gray in the chest following an ongoing altercation that began at Club Pasha in midtown Manhattan, earlier that night.”

“Robert and Marcus Rosado accepted responsibility today for their role in the tragic incident that occurred in June 2009,” their lawyer, Alan A. Ambramson told “They wish to express their deepest sympathies to the Guerrero family and they hope that by accepting responsibility he can bring some measure of closure to the family.”

Tru and his brother have been in jail since their arrest nearly two years ago.  They will recieve credit for time served.

Listen to Tru-Life when he was on Lip Service from February 5th, 2007.  He appeared on the show a couple weeks after he dropped his mixtape “Tru-York.”  He talks about his first record deal when he was younger with his group Ghetto Inmates, having DJ Green Lantern take him to meet Jay-Z, signing with Jay the same day he met him, first linking up with Snoop Dogg, his beef with Jimmy Jones & Dipset, his eight-year relationship with his girlfriend, taking shots at Lil Wayne, and a whole lot more shit after they get him drunk. “Wow” Definitely one of the most memorable nights on Lip Service.
