This is crazy. After doing a 6 month bid in jail rapper Kevin Gates lands himself right back in jail only moments of being a free man. BUT WHY?
According to the ledger, Gates was about to be released from the Polk County Jail when the Cook County, Illinois, felony warrant was found.He had just completed a 180-day sentence after being convicted in October 2016 for kicking an 19-year-old woman during a performance on Aug. 30, 2015, at a Lakeland nightclub.
During his hearing at 1 p.m. Friday in the Polk County Courthouse, Gates waived extradition to Cook County. He will be picked up by Illinois authorities within 30 days, said Assistant State Attorney Jake Orr. Chicago is in Cook County.
By terms of his waived extradition , Kevin agreed to return to the jurisdiction where he faces charges without a court hearing to determine whether the transfer is justified.
Circuit Judge Kelly Butz ordered that Kevin Gates be held without bail.
Stay tuned for more on this matter.
