Youngboy isn’t happy upon the decision handed from the judge
Just about eight months after landing in East Baton Rouge jail for attempted murder charges
and three months after getting released, YoungBoy Never Broke Again has been handed a suspended
10-year jail sentence and three years of probation for aggravated assault with a firearm.
He received that sentence and a lecture about fatherhood and violence from Judge Bonnie Jackson.
Baton Rouge-based publication, The Advocate reported the news on Tuesday (Aug. 22).
The 17-year-old rapper, born Kentrell Gaulden, had been locked up since last December on two charges
of attempted first degree murder for his role in an alleged drive-by shooting that took place the month
before. He was identified as one of two people who hopped out of a car and began firing bullets into a crowd
on the 2000 block of Kentucky Street.
During an exchange The Advocate described as “gripping but respectful,” NBA YoungBoy and Judge Jackson made their feelings about the situation known.
