YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Pleads Guilty and Sentenced to Three Years of Probation

The judge tore into him at his sentencing.

Rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again has been sentenced to three years of probation for aggravated assault with a firearm. The charge stems from a drive-by shooting in Old South Baton Rouge in November and YoungBoy’s sentence comes with a 10-year suspended prison sentence.

The rapper whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden pled guilty to the charge after being booked back in February on the much graver charge of attempted first-degree murder. Rather than contest those two counts, Gaulden pled guilty to a lesser charge in May. At his sentencing hearing, Gaulden and the judge went back-and-forth about his rap career, violent choices and young fatherhood.

“I wasn’t very happy with the circumstances of your case, not at all,” District Judge Bonnie Jackson told Gaulden, according to The Advocate. “I take full responsibility for what happened. I’m sorry,” Gaulden responded. “It wasn’t supposed to go that way.”

Jackson wasn’t quite buying Gaulden’s apologies, saying that he “went looking for trouble and found it.” The judge added that the only thing standing between Gaulden and a charge with a life sentence attached was poor aim. “Fortunately, you all were bad shots,” she said.

When Gaulden defended himself later in the exchange by saying that he hadn’t killed anyone, the judge wasn’t having it. “But you could have,” she said. “It wasn’t for lack of trying. You weren’t a good shot.”
