After seven months behind bars, rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again was released from jail in Louisiana Tuesday to serve pre-trial house arrest in Utah, the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Rolling Stone.
The Baton Rouge-bred hip hop prodigy walked out of custody around 3 p.m. local time after federal prosecutors on his pending California gun case agreed to the terms of the $1.5 million bail and home detention ordered in his separate Baton Rouge gun case by a federal judge last week, multiple sources said.
“I’m really, really happy for him,” defense lawyer Drew Findling told Rolling Stone following a Tuesday hearing. “This is the right result. It’s the fair result.”
YoungBoy, whose legal name is Kentrell Gaulden, was granted the $1.5 million bail with a GPS monitor and strict conditions Friday afternoon after the rapper’s defense team presented a detailed bond proposal with witness testimony during a three-day hearing.
