Kevin Gates Sentenced to 30 Months in Prison for Felony Gun Possesion
Kevin Gates has been sentenced to 30 months for a gun charge. According to TMZ, the Baton Rouge rapper pled guilty to felony gun possession when he appeared in an Illinois court on Wednesday (April 26).
As we previously reported, Gates was sent to a Cooke County jail on the same day he was released from a Florida cell for kicking a woman at his concert. Then last week, a judge denied his bail, which was the first sign that things weren’t looking too good for the “2 Phones” rapper.
Since being locked up, the rapper’s wife Dreka Gates has been his biggest cheerleader, which isn’t surprising and she asked fans to pray for her husband.
“To everyone that’s rooting for Kevin right now, thank you but please shift your thoughts, prayers, energy, etc. towards the idea of Kevin being home and enjoying his life as a free man,” she wrote last month.
Unfortunately for the rapper, he won’t be a free man for a long while. That’s unless he gets out early for good behavior or something.
