Kevin Gates Sentenced To 6 Months In Jail For Kicking Fan
You may recall a little incident last year where rapper Kevin Gates kicked a young woman attending one of his shows in the chest after she dared to touch his leg during his performance in Lakeland, FL — and it was all caught on camera.
Kevin’s legal battle over the incident has been going strong since August 2015. He even tried to use the Florida “Stand Your Ground” law to claim that he was just defending himself from being pulled offstage by Miranda Dixon, whom his defense painted as an overzealous and aggressive fan.
However the jury, comprised by six white women, found Gates guilty of misdemeanor battery. What’s interesting is…the judge actually tripled the 60-day sentence requested by the state — opting instead to 180 days with credit for any time served, as well as fines and court costs.
YIKES. Looks like it’ll be a minute before we see Kevin again…
