After Kevin Gates decided it would be a good idea to kick a fan in the face, he ended up getting some serious jail time. Now he’s in jail on extra charges for up to 30 months. People change while they’re in prison. We’ve seen it time and time again… Someone goes in one person and comes out a completely different one. What’s going on with Kevin on the inside? Some mugshots recently came out that might give us a hint.
Kicking Things Off
The 31-year-old rapper from Louisiana seems to keep getting himself into trouble over and over again. In case you don’t know why he’s in jail in the first place, it’s because he was charged with battery after kicking a fan in the face while he was performing on stage.
Gates was sent to jail for 180 days because of the incident, and we were all thinking that he was going to get out at the end of March 2017. Obviously, that didn’t happen like we thought. Instead, Gates was sentenced to 30 more months in prison! That’s a long time!
All the Time in the World
Gates’ second sentence took place right after he was denied bail, and the 30 months in jail was a result of his previous gun charge. He pleaded guilty to felony gun charges earlier in the year, and as a result, he got a lot more time tacked on. So what is Gates doing with all of his time that he has in jail?
