As NBA YoungBoy’s legal troubles worsen, it seems that things are only going to get worse before they get better. NBA YoungBoy was recently moved back to his Louisiana hometown to face charges related to his arrest in California in late March, and the mugshot from that official booking has just been posted. Following his conviction in California on federal weapons charges, NBA YoungBoy, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, is now back in a Louisiana prison. On April 14th, he was officially booked into the St. Martin Parish Jail, where he will be held on a federal hold by the United States Marshal’s Service.
YoungBoy was previously arrested in Los Angeles on a federal warrant from Baton Rouge, for which a grand jury issued an indictment in March for felony possession of a weapon. Meanwhile, as previously noted, US District Judge Shelly Dick has ordered NBA YoungBoy to remain in custody pending his trial. Judge Dick allegedly based his decision on YoungBoy’s history of probation violations as well as his “characteristics.” Additionally, the Louisiana State Attorney noted that another reason he should remain in jail is because of his considerable wealth, stating that YoungBoy’s ability to quickly post bail and return back to the streets is of great concern. The State Attorney also said, “despite the recommendation of the United States Probation and Pre-Trial Services Department that the defendant presents a risk of danger.”
