After the shocking news of inmate Dexter Issac who claims to be the gunman admitting his role in the 1994 shooting of rapper/actor Tupac Shakur and claims it was ordered by music mogul Jimmy Rosemond, an attorney has stepped forward to deny the accusations.

Despite Isaac’s confession, Rosemond’s attorney is convinced that it was a lie.
Rosemond’s lawyer Jeffrey Lichtman told the Daily News, “It’s a flat out lie, Dexter Isaac is not claiming this 17 years later to clear his conscience. He’s doing it because he’s told anybody who will listen he doesn’t want to die in prison. He has kids and wants to work off his sentence. He can’t be trusted.” (New York Daily News)
Yesterday, Isaac said his reason to the confession was to bring closure to Pac’s family.
“I want to apologize to his family [Tupac Shakur] and for the mistake I did for that sucker [Jimmy Henchman],” Dexter Isaac told AllHipHop.com from prison. “I am trying to clean it up to give [Tupac and Biggie’s] mothers some closure.” Isaac said he was comfortable going on record relating to the robbery and shooting, since the statute of limitations had expired. Legally, no one can be prosecuted for the assault at this time. Isaac was a lifelong friend of Jimmy Henchmen, who helped the former mogul set up his first company, Henchman Entertainment, in 1989.
