Kevin Gates was sentenced 6 months prison yesterday for kicking a female fan at one of his shows last year in Lakeland, Florida.
Gates claimed the female Miranda Dixon was grabbing at his shorts, and had tried to pull him off of stage. He attempted to use Florida’s Stand Your Ground law to have the case dismissed, but the judge rejected it.
Yesterday Gates was found guilty of misdemeanor battery. The prosecutors had asked for 60 days (2 Months) in prison, but the judge decided to triple the sentence to 180 days (6 months). Gates will also spend a year on probation when he is released from prison.
Do you think the sentencing was appropriate or too harsh?
