NBA YoungBoy's Lawyer Calls His Release 'Fair Result' After Granted Bond in California

The 'Outside Today' rapper has walked free from Louisiana jail after California prosecutors agreed to the terms of his $1.5 million bail in his separate Baton Rogue case.

AceShowbiz - NBA YoungBoy a.k.a. YoungBoy Never Broke Again has finally walked out from jail after spending seven months behind bars. The rapper was released on bond on Tuesday, October 26 after forking $500,000 in cash, his attorneys Drew Findling and Andre Belanger tell TMZ.

The St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office also confirmed to Rolling Stone that the star, whose real name is Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, walked out of a Louisiana jail at 3 P.M. local time to serve pre-trial house arrest in Utah. Findling told the site following a Tuesday hearing, "I'm really, really happy for him. This is the right result. It's the fair result."

The Baton Rogue native was previously granted a $1.5 million bond in Louisiana, where he was being held on drug and weapon charges. On Friday, October 22, Judge Shelly Dick of the Middle District of Louisiana granted his request for temporary release under strict conditions.

The bond includes the condition that the 22-year-old must wear a GPS monitor and is restricted to a residence in Utah. No one is allowed to stay at the residence with him except for his family and he also has to stay away from guns and have to submit drug tests regularly.

"Bail and bail conditions for his release were ordered by the judge," defense lawyer Findling said after the hearing in Baton Rouge at the time. "It was a very comprehensive bond order." However, his release was pending because he also faces charges in the state of California.

On Tuesday, federal prosecutors on his pending California gun case finally agreed to the terms of the $1.5 million bail and home detention ordered in his Baton Rogue case. "I'm extremely overwhelmed with gratitude at the result of last week's hearing and think this was the just decision," his lawyer added after the Tuesday hearing.
