Winn’s attorney, Jon Paul Rion, wrote in his motion for bond that Winn “is a devoted father, son, brother, and full time musician who is active in the community of Dayton” who serves “his community through efforts such as feeding the homeless and distributing personal items, toys and clothes to those in need.”
Letters supporting Winn were written by his fiance and mother of their daughter, his music manager Robin Mobley and others.

“We believe, if given the chance, Clarence Winn could be a positive influence in the community,” Rion said Wednesday. “He’s addressed social issues in a positive fashion … he’s helped young people try to see their dreams. We’re hopeful, at one point, that the good deeds that Clarence has done in the past will assist him in this case.”
Police said Winn, his brother Larry Winn and Darrius Reynolds were arrested in March with four pounds of fentanyl, cash, guns and 10 “upscale” vehicles at search warrant raids at four locations in Dayton and Trotwood.

The raid was conducted by the Regional Agencies Narcotics & Gun Enforcement (RANGE) Task Force along with an FBI SWAT team. The drugs seized have a street value of about $160,000, Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer has said.
Winn is part of a group called Diamond Cut — an organization he contends is made up of musicians but that which law enforcement has called a gang. Other members of Diamond Cut have been prosecuted for federal drug-related crimes.
