Things don't look too good for NBA YoungBoy at the moment because prosecutors in Baton Rouge want him to serve a suspended 10-year sentence.
In 2016, the rapper was involved in a nonfatal drive-by shooting in his hometown and was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder. He ended up pleading guilty to the reduced charge of aggravated assault with a firearm.
At the time, the judge suspended his 10-year sentence and gave him active supervised probation. The condition was that NBA couldn't be arrested or convicted of anything during that period and if he did, it would be bad for him.
"Failure is not an option," the judge told him.
Last month, NBA was arrested in Tallahassee, Fla. on a fugitive warrant out of Georgia for kidnapping, weapons and domestic violence charges. The charges stem from YoungBoy getting caught on tape beating his girlfriend bloody in a hotel lobby, although she claims they were just playing.
Now Baton Rouge prosecutors want his probation rescinded. There will be a hearing for that on May 18th, and the prosecutors want him locked up until then, calling him a threat to society.
Despite this potential 10-year bid, YoungBoy's lawyer seems confident.
"It's serious, but it's not nearly as severe as it's been made out to be," said attorney James Manasseh. “There’s no kidnapping. There’s no weapons involved.”
Do you think NBA will head to prison for 10 years. If so, does he deserve to?
