12-Year-Old Rapper In Court Over Felony Charge For Allegedly Selling CDs At Atlanta Mall
Corey “Lil C-Note” Jackson was arrested back in October 2018 for allegedly selling CDs inside of Atlanta’s Cumberland Mall.
A 12-year-old rapper recently appeared in court over charges stemming from an incident that occurred last year where he was allegedly selling CDs in an Atlanta mall.
Corey “Lil C-Note” Jackson, who is facing multiple charges including felony obstruction, misdemeanor criminal trespass, and disorderly conduct, appeared in court Tuesday alongside his attorneys, where they denied the charges against the child.
The incident took place back in October 2018, when Jackson was grabbed by an officer and threatened with arrest for selling his mixtape inside Atlanta’s Cumberland Mall.
“You’re 12? Stop. You’re going to go to a youth detention center if you don’t stop,” the officer had told Jackson via a video that was taken of the exchange.
Cobb County Police Chief Mike Register had defended the officer and said that Jackson had sold his music in the mall twice before the altercation. However, Jackson’s attorneys have denied that.
“When he was there, he was not selling any c.d.s or doing anything that would have been prohibited he was there meeting other artists,” Mawuli Davis, one of Jackson’s attorneys, told CBS 46.

In the same report, Jackson also addressed the charges, saying: “I know that I didn’t do anything wrong.”
Jackson’s attorney is hoping the charges will be thrown out. If not, it will head to trial.
