Host of Tax Season Podcast Charged with Murder



Earlier this year, the host of the Tax Season podcast was charged on a federal weapons possession charge that was tied to the May 2016 shooting at Irving Plaza in Manhattan. Recently, The New York Times reported that he has now been charged with Murder.

The host of the Tax Season Podcast used the stage name Taxstone, but his real name is Daryl Campbell. It is not unusual for a podcast host to use a name other than their real name. People who podcast about video games often use the name of their main character. The Tax Season podcast was not about video games, nor was it about taxes. It was a podcast about hip-hop artists.

On July 13, 2017, The New York Times reported that Daryl Campbell had been charged with murder in connection to a shooting that took place during a T.I. Concert at Irving Plaza in Manhattan last year. Daryl Campbell pleaded not guilty before Justice Maxwell Wiley in New York Supreme Court. Kenneth Montgomery, (who is Daryl Campbell’s lawyer) stated that they are going to fight the charges.

According to The New York Times: “Last month, Mr. Campbell pleaded guilty in federal court to receiving a firearm by interstate commerce with the intent to commit a felony and possessing a firearm as a felon. He faces 20 years in prison when he is sentenced on those charges.” There’s a lot more to the story, and I will leave you read The New York Times article if you want more details.
