As part of his plea agreement, he will serve 10 days in the county jail alongside murderers, purse snatchers, and other hoodlums. After he is released, he will serve three years on probation.
Gray was also ordered to pay restitution to his ex-girlfriend. He must also enroll in a domestic violence offender treatment program.
During his probation, Gray won’t be allowed to touch liquor or illegal drugs and he’ll also submit to drug and alcohol testing.
The 27-year-old Sagittarius and his sister grew up in West Philadelphia with a single mother.
The aspiring rapper worked three jobs to help his mother pay the bills. He was fired from a job at Pizza Hut after he was caught writing rap lyrics while on the clock.
