French Court Orders Freddie Gibbs Extradited To Austria To Face Rape Charges

Last week, Freddie Gibbs was released on bail from French jail after being arrested earlier this month in connection with a rape allegedly committed last year. Today, he appeared in French court and was ordered to extradite to Austria, the country where the rape allegedly occurred. Agence France-Presse (via Yahoo) reports that he is accused of “drugging two women who came backstage after a July 6 concert in Vienna, before taking them back to a hotel where they were allegedly raped by the rapper and one of his security agents.”

Gibbs denies the charges, and his lawyer Michael Malka said they are deciding whether or not to appeal the extradition in the next 72 hours, but that Gibbs “has no intention of escaping justice, whether French or Austrian.”
