Ramsay Tha Great Pleads Not Guilty After Arrest for Pimping and Pandering
Producer Ramsay Tha Great was arraigned on felony charges of pimping and pandering two women in Orange County, Calif., on Thursday (Feb. 10). The former Chief Keef producer, whose real name is Brandon Christopher Ramsay, pleaded not guilty to two felony counts and pimping and two felony counts of pandering by procuring, according to the Orange County Register.
The 24-year-old beatmaker is currently being held in jail on $70,000 bail. If convicted, Ramsay faces a maximum of seven years in prison.
According to Orange County prosecutors, Ramsay allegedly pimped and pandered two women - an 18-year-old and a 20-year-old — and used the money they received from sexual acts for profit. On Tuesday (Feb. 6), police discovered advertisements depicting the two women soliciting for sex. An undercover officer contacted one of the women and arranged to meet both of them at a motel.
After the women met with the undercover officer, Ramsay called one of the girls on her cell phone multiple times asking their location. Afterward, Ramsay drove up into the motel’s parking lot, where he was met with police and subsequently arrested.
Last month, Ramsay Tha Great was in the headlines after he was assaulted by Chief Keef and his crew. The altercation resulted in severe facial injuries, which he shared on social media. Keef and another associate was arrested for the incident.
Attorneys for Ramsay Tha Great had no comment on the matter.
