Judge Says Ja Rule Can't Post Bail for Co-Defendants in Gun Possession Case

A judge in New York says Ja Rule can't post bail for co-defendants in a gun possession case — and she wants the duo to come up with their own money.

State Supreme Court Justice Micki Scherer said Wednesday the rapper "put himself in the position of perhaps controlling the outcome of the case" by posting thousands of dollars in bail for the co-defendants.

"I think the potential for it is a big problem," Scherer said.

Ja Rule's lawyer said the defense will come up with separate bail packages for co-defendants Dennis Cherry and Mohamed Gamal.
