Coolio’s Son Grtis Ivey Sentenced, Faces Major Jail Time for Robbery
It may be awhile before Coolio's eldest son Grtis Ivey is out from behind bars. Ivey was charged in November 2011, for staging a heist in a Las Vegas apartment. Now, due to a plea deal, he faces some serious jail time.
According to TMZ, the "Gangsta's Paradise" rapper's son stormed the dwelling armed with a gun. Ivey forced the tenant to stay in the bathroom while the 22-year-old's "female prostitute friend" took apart the home, searching for valuables.
Earlier this week, Ivey agreed to the plea deal. He plead guilty to a felony robbery charge. In exchange, prosecutors will drop the remaining felonies against the hip-hopper's troubled son.
Ivey could serve between 42 months and 10 years in prison.
