Gunna Freed From Prison After Entering A Guilty Plea In The YSL RICO Case

According to Atlanta’s Channel 2 Action News and Pitchfork, Gunna entered a plea on Wednesday to one count of conspiring to break the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. To protect himself, the rapper entered an Alford plea, which means that he admitted guilt on one count while adamantly claiming innocence on the other. As a result, Gunna was given a five-year prison sentence, but it was converted to time served, and the remainder of the sentence was suspended, so he was freed from jail.

The rapper will perform 500 hours of community service as part of the agreement. Along with Young Thug and other members of the Young Stoner Life (YSL) label and imprint, Gunna was detained in May. The rappers and others were accused of conspiring to break the RICO Act in an indictment that led to the arrests. While he awaits his trial, Young Thug is still behind bars. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the case’s jury selection will start on January 4th, 2023.

Gunna also mentioned in his official statement that he doesn’t think of YSL as a “gang.” The rapper underlined that YSL is not a gang while acknowledging his affiliation with them. Gunna claimed that he had always considered it a collection of Atlanta Metro residents coming together to create entertainment with similar interests and perspectives.
