#Roommates, last week, NBA YoungBoy was arrested and indicted on federal weapons charges in Los Angeles, with the hope of soon being released—however that is not going to happen any time soon. According to recent reports, a judge recently revoked NBA YoungBoy’s $540,000 bond and ordered that he remain in jail until his official trial date.
@Complex reports, U.S. District Judge Shelly D Dick formally ordered that NBA YoungBoy remain detained in jail pending trial. Judge Dick’s ruling was reportedly based on YoungBoy’s history of violating probation, along was 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.”
The official court documents of the ruling go into elaborate detail regarding why NBA YoungBoy’s (born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden) bond was revoked following his latest arrest:
“Two factors—Gaulden’s history and characteristics and the nature and seriousness of the danger posed by Gaulden’s release—are closely related. U.S. Probation and Pre-Trial Services provided the Court with sealed, relevant information germane to Gaulden’s characteristics and history, which reflect a pattern of violent behavior stretching back several years. The Court also notes that based on their investigation into Gaulden’s history and background, U.S. Probation and Pre-Trial Services recommended detention. The exhibits offered by the Government, particularly the testimony from Gaulden’s June 2019 state probation revocation proceeding and the U.S. Probation and Pre-Trial Services report, convincingly satisfy the Court that there is a serious risk of danger to the public if Gaulden is released.”
As we previously reported, NBA YoungBoy is currently charged with federal knowing possession of a firearm as a felon and possession of a firearm not registered to him.
