G. Dep, GQ Editor-in-Chief: Jim Nelson Reveals Role as Juror in Trevell Coleman Murder Trial


Rapper G. Dep was convicted of murder last month, after killing a man in 1993 and coming forward with a surprise confession in 2010. One of the jurors that found the former Bad Boy signee, born Trevell Coleman, guilty was GQ Editor-in-Chief Jim Nelson.

Nelson revealed his experience as a juror in GQ’s Letter From the Editor, due to appear in the upcoming June issue. The magazine editor, who’s a native of Greenbelt, Md., admits he did not know Coleman was actually one of Diddy‘s artists years ago.

“I never knew this until after the trial-the judge must have limited what we were told about the defendant, and I didn’t recognize him-but Trevell Coleman, I later learned when I looked into the case, became a semifamous rapper in the years after the crime,” he wrote.

Despite finding him guilty “because he was,” Nelson “wondered if I was fit to judge this man who was capable of acts of public violence and personal honor I couldn’t even imagine having to wrestle with.”

G. Dep will be sentenced May 8. He faces a 15-years-to-life prison term.
