Young Thug, co-accused facing new charges in gang trial

Rapper Young Thug and four other accused are facing additional charges in their wide-ranging RICO case.

The charges follow a new indictment that was filed in Fulton County Superior Court last week.

The Atlanta rapper, whose real name is Jeffery Williams, is now facing charges of participation in criminal street gang activity, violation of the Georgia controlled substances act, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a machine gun and drug charges. 

The new charges stem from what investigators found during his arrest on the original indictment back in May.

Young Thug's attorney, Brian Steel, maintains that his client is innocent and looks forward to fighting the charges in court.
