Jimmy Henchman Faces Life in Prison

Jimmy Henchman

James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond, a one time music mogul who managed the careers of artists such as Brandy and Game, was found guilty on all charges that he ran a drug-trafficking ring. 

As the CEO of Czar Entertainment, Rosemond oversaw the careers of high-profile musicians, actors, and sports figures, but federal prosecutors charged that it was all a front for a bicoastal, $10 million-a-year drug organization that moved money and narcotics from New York to California. .

“James Rosemond never touched a kilo of cocaine,” defense lawyer Gerald Shargel said during the trial’s opening statements. ”He is not that kingpin that the government says he was.”

Warrants were issued for Rosemond’s arrest in May 2011, and he remained on the run until he was arrested in New York City a month later. He immediately entered a not-guilty plea.

Rosemond now faces life in prison and will be sentenced at a later date.
