Pooh Shiesty Addresses Fans After Pleading Guilty

Memphis rapper Pooh Shiesty pleaded guilty to one count in his federal robbery case this week, which prompted prosecutors to drop three other charges against him. Additionally, the rapper is also no longer facing a life sentence, as prosecutors have agreed that they will suggest no more than a ninety-seven-month sentence, which equals just over eight years.

While eight years would be a terrible blow for the 22-year-old superstar rapper, who is really just getting started with his music career, it’s a much lighter sentence than life, so he has to be breathing a major sigh of relief. Still though, we’re sure his legal team will be working around the clock to ensure he gets the lightest sentence possible when it comes time for his sentencing trial.
