The West Coast rap legend’s son has just landed himself a three and a half year sentence.
Grtis Ivey will be serving a three and a half year prison sentence after agreeing to the terms of a plea agreement, resulting from a number of 2011 felony charges.
Despite the current sentence of three and half years, the 22 year old could still receive a ten year sentence.
According to TMZ, Coolio’s eldest son agreed to a plea deal earlier this week, which stemmed from a robbery felony charge. The requirements of the deal meant that the prosecution would drop the four remaining charges in exchange for a guilty plea for the robbery charge in question. The minimum prison sentence Grtis Ivey could receive is three and a half years, but a judge could potentially see fit to give him the maximum sentence of ten years behind bars.
Grtis Ivey has been in prison since mid-November 2011, when he was arrested for conducting an armed robbery with a Las Vegas prostitute. He and Vegas hooker, Shantrice Wilkerson, burst into a man’s Vegas apartment and robbed the place whilst holding the owner at gunpoint. Ivey was held without bail.
Grtis Ivey will have to wait until September 12, 2012, for a formal sentence to be passed on this recent plea deal.
