G. Dep Freed After 14 Years in Prison Following Clemency

After spending nearly a decade and a half behind bars, G. Dep, the former Bad Boys Records artist, has been released from prison. The 49-year-old, whose real name is Trevell Coleman, was granted clemency by New York Governor Kathy Hochul late last year, along with 15 others.

Upon his release on Thursday from Fishkill Correctional Facility in upstate New York, G. Dep was met with a prayer circle outside the prison grounds. His official Instagram page captured moments of his release and subsequent celebrations, including his first meal at iHop.

G. Dep’s original sentence of 15 years to life had prevented him from seeking parole until after the 15-year mark. However, the clemency granted him the opportunity to petition for parole after serving 13 years.

His incarceration stemmed from a 1993 incident in East Harlem where, at 18 years old, he attempted to rob 32-year-old John Henkel at gunpoint. Tragically, Henkel succumbed to his injuries after Dep fired three shots and fled the scene. The murder remained unsolved until Dep turned himself in 17 years later.

In an interview conducted shortly after his imprisonment, G. Dep reflected on his actions, expressing some level of acceptance. However, he acknowledged the gravity of his actions, particularly the impact on his family.

While he admitted to struggling with self-forgiveness, G. Dep emphasized his commitment to personal growth and reconciliation with his past. He shared his hope that his family, including his daughter and sons, would come to understand his decisions over time.
