Kevin Gates hasn’t had the best of luck with the law lately. After serving a 5 month sentence ending in March, the rapper is to remain in jail. Appearing in a Chicago court on Wednesday, Kevin Gates pleaded guilty to a felony gun possession charge that carried up to 10 years in prison. Luckily for the Louisiana rapper, the judge dished out 30 months.
Kevin Gates was arrested back in 2013 while in Chicago for illegally possessing a firearm. Warrants were issued when the rapper didn’t show up for court. Because of this, Gates was arrested on an outstanding warrant which caused him to remain in jail upon his original release. Kevin Gates will be transferred to the Illinois Department of Corrections to carry out his sentence.
