Rapper Kevin Gates received surprising news as his trial hearing this week. He has been sentenced to 6 months in jail after being convicted of assault and battery for kicking a female fan, 19-year old Miranda DIxon, at a Polk County, Florida nightclub last year.
Gates attorney, Jose Baez argued his client was repeatedly badgered by the woman prior to the cellphone recording that witnessed the brutal kick. However, the jury wasn’t hearing any of that and came back from deliberation with a guilty verdict. The jury requested 60 days behind bars, but the judge unhappy with Gates antics up’d the bid to 180 days.
Here’s the video of the kick that led to the sentencing.
