NBA YoungBoy Facing $100K Bond Over Prescription Fraud Case

A Utah judge has decided that NBA YoungBoy will have to pay a hefty price for his freedom. The 24-year-old rapper is being held on a $100,000 bond and faces charges related to an alleged prescription operation he ran. NBA (real name Kentrell Gaulden), appeared before the judge on Thursday (May 9). Last month, the rapper was arrested at his Huntsville home, while awaiting trial for a separate federal charge, KUTV-TV reported.

Regarding his current legal troubles, he is facing nearly 63 felonies and misdemeanors. The charges include identity fraud, obtaining a prescription under false pretenses, and forgery. He’s also facing charges of possession of a dangerous weapon, engaging in unlawful activity, and possession of a controlled substance.

NBA Youngboy’s arraignment is set for July 1, at which time he will enter into a plea agreement. The rapper’s lawyers informed him that the state agreed to the bond only in exchange for waiving a preliminary hearing. Had he gone that route, the “Bandit” rapper, would’ve had to convince a judge that he had committed a crime.

“You’ll be brought over from the Cache County Jail assuming you’re still incarcerated,” the judge said according to court documents. Eventually, additional charges would be stacked on from Weber County — including a second-degree felony count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person and two Class A misdemeanor counts of distributing a controlled substance.

Regarding the firearms charges NBA Youngboy faces in Baton Rogue, he is scheduled to appear at trial on July 1. He will appear in front of U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick. These firearm charges stem from a 2020 incident at a music video shoot of his. Additionally, officers arrested 15 other people present after police found several pistols and assault rifles hidden on the video set.
