Hot! Max B’s Ex-Girlfriend Loses Jail Bid, Stuck In Prison

Details of Gina Gonway’s denial surfaced online Wednesday (July 3).

 

The ex-girlfriend of jailed rapper Max B has lost a bid to lower her 15-year sentence for her role in a 2006 armed robbery that turned deadly. Gina Conway, 36, was working on orders from the Harlem emcee (whose real name is Charly Wingate) when she and another man, Kelvin Leerdam, forced their way into a Fort Lee hotel room to commit the robbery in September 2006. She helped bind and gag two of the victims, and Leerdam eventually shot and killed another a third man, David Taylor. (Star-Ledger)

 

She will now have to wait six years before having another opportunity to appeal.

 

Conway’s testimony helped prosecutors convict both Wingate and Leerdam of felony murder, armed robbery and other offenses. In return, she received a 15-year prison term for armed robbery. In her appeal, which was denied this morning, she contended that the confession she provided police in the days after Taylor’s murder was involuntary, and should have been suppressed, and that her sentence was excessive. A state panel rejected both arguments. The state also rejected similar appeals last year by Leerdam and Wingate, who is serving a 75-year sentence. Conway will not be eligible for parole until June 2019, according to Department of Corrections records. (Star-Ledger)
