The trial of music industry mogul James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond came to a close today in a Brooklyn federal court. A jury found Rosemond guilty of all 13 charges levied against him, for allegedly heading up the “Rosemond Organization.”
Federal prosecutors claim the organization shipped hundreds of kilograms on a weekly basis from the West Coast, using various overnight courier services. The drugs were then shipped to New York, while the proceeds were sent back to the West Coast.

Rosemond was emotionless when the jurors reached their verdict, while his family friends and supporters showed obvious signs of disappointment. “I am very disappointed by the verdict,” Rosemond’s lawyer Gerald Shargel told AllHipHop.com exclusively. “There were a lot of reasons to doubt the government’s case.”
James Rosemond was the CEO of Czar Entertainment, which at its height, managed artists like Akon, Brandy, Groove Theory, Gucci Mane, Game, Michael K. Williams, Mike Tyson, Sheek Louch, and numerous others.
Rosemond is facing life in prison. He will be sentenced at a later date.
