Coolio’s Son To Serve Up To 10 Years In Prison For Kidnapping/Robbery


(AllHipHop News) Grtis Ivey, the 22-year-old son of rapper Coolio, has been sentenced to nearly 4 years in jail on charges related to kidnapping and robbery.

Ivey was arrested on November 14, 2011 and charged after the beating and robbing of a resident in a Las Vegas apartment complex, TMZ reports. At that time, Ivey entered the home with a gun and a female prostitute accomplice, who helped rob the person.

Ivey agreed to a plea deal and plead guilty to a felony robbery charge and, in exchange, police dropped four additional felony charges that were levied against him.

He will serve at least 3.5 years in jail and up to 10 years, depending on the judges discretion.

Grtis Ivey is Coolio’s eldest son.

A judge will formally sentence him on September 12.

Coolio had no public comment at press time.
