All reports that Michael K. Williams, better known as ‘Omar’ from The Wire, appeared at a Brooklyn Federal Court to defend his ex-manager and friend James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond. Rosemond is accused of running a drug empire, shipping cocaine in musical cases:

Jurors began deliberating the fate of James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond today (June 4), as the music industry mogul’s federal cocaine distribution trial comes to a close.

Judge John Gleeson, who tried legendary gangster John Gotti, gave instructions to the jury, who listened intently after 12 days of controversial, blockbuster testimony.
