Former Terror Squad member and Fat Joe protoge Remy Ma’s appeal for her 2008 jail conviction was denied last Thursday (Feb 24) after the court struck down the argument that the judge over the case failed to properly inform jurors of details before they reached their guilty verdict.

The Grammy nominated rapper, real name Reminisce Smith, is currently serving jail time at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women in Bedord Hills, New York. Smith was involved in a July 2007 incident in which she shot her friend who she thought stole $3,000 in cash from her purse.

Remy was found guilty of weapons posession, coercion and assault and was sentenced to 8 years in prison in 2008. Just 2 years prior, the femcee had released her debut album There’s Something ABout Remy: Based on a True Story. She married fellow rapper Papoose shortly after she went to jail.
