Remy Ma sentenced to 8 years in prison

Despite weeping and pleas to the judge for leniency, Remy Ma was sentenced to 8 years in prison today by New York State Supreme Court Justice Rena Uviller, according to the New York Post.

"I feel so bad for all the physical and mental pain you've gone through," Remy told the victim, Makeda Barnes-Joseph just before hearing her sentence. "This has taken a toll on us and both our families. I would never wish you harm and I pray the best for all of us."

Remy begged for leniency for the best interests of her young son, noting her own rough childhood.

While Judge Uviller acknowledged Remy's pleas, she also noted that her victim nearly died, and will never be physically the same again.

Remy's fiance, Papoose, was heard shouting "All you want is money!" at the victim after the sentence and yelled "Lock me up! Lock me up!" at court officers.

The couple, who's wedding was postponed this weekend, still plan to marry after Remy is transfered upstate.
