Eric Holder’s trial has faced numerous delays in the past three years since Nipsey’s death. Holder was initially supposed to stand trial on Jan. 5th but it seems that nothing come out of it. Holder’s attorney, Aaron Jansen, explained that his client was nervous but understood that the case needed no further delays.

Holder already pleaded not guilty to all charges against him, including one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder, a count of felony possession of a firearm, and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

Jansen revealed that his client was coping with “a substantial mental health issue” in the aftermath of his mother’s passing. He said Holder was “off his medication” on the day Nipsey Hussle was murdered.

Holder is facing a life sentence behind bars if he’s convicted.

We will continue to provide updates on the case.
