Kevin Gates Sentenced To 30 Months In Prison
Kevin Gates will spend the next two and a half years behind bars.
Kevin Gates has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for gun charges in Cook County, Illinois. On Wednesday, the “2 Phones” rapper appeared in court, where he pleaded guilty. He will now be transferred to the Illinois Department of Corrections to serve his time.
Gates’ lawyer, Herschel Rush, told TMZ that he was “pleased with the result of 30 months”, especially since the charges carried a maximum of 10 years in prison.
After serving 180 days in prison for kicking a female fan in the chest during a show, Gates turned himself over to authorities for an outstanding warrant that was issued after Gates failed to appear at a 2013 court date. Prior to pleading guilty this week, Gates was denied bail.
Gates is scheduled for a 2019 release date.
