According to reports, Dep will try his luck in a courtroom this November. The 36-year-old turned himself in to clear his conscience of shooting a man in an attempted robbery, only to later learn that the attack was fatal.

The DA's office said it would only offer a plea deal for the top count – murder in the second degree – which could put him behind bars for 25 years to life. It is my understanding that the parties have not been able to reach an agreement," Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus said. "The people are not willing to offer anything other than a plea to the [top count]." A trial date is set for November 10th.

In June, Dep reflected on confessing to the early 1990's shooting from a Rikers Island jail.

"Thinking about that day, that whole situation, that incident right there when I went into the precinct," Dep says in the trailer. "That was a real shock. I knew I probably would have to do maybe some time or something was going to be investigated or something like that. But when the detective came back in and said the guy died, it kinda just changed everything."

Last December, Dep admitted to being the gunman behind a 1993 murder.
