Pooh Shiesty Will Reportedly Be On Supervised Release For Three Years Once He’s Released From Prison

Pooh Shiesty, born Lontrell Donell Williams Jr., dodged a career-shattering bullet when a judge only sentence him to five years in prison earlier this month for firearms conspiracy. The sentence was handed down in connection to an October 2020 incident where Williams allegedly shot a man in the buttocks during an exchange for marijuana and sneakers. Williams was initially indicted on four firearms charges, but after he accepted a plea deal from prosecutors, his charges were reduced to a single count of conspiracy to possess a firearm in furtherance of violent and drug-trafficking crimes. That reduced his possible life sentence to just a maximum of 97 months in prison, but a judge felt that 63 months was adequate for Williams.

However, Williams won’t be a completely free man once he walks out of prison in five years. According to TMZ, Williams will reportedly be on supervised release for three years once his prison term is complete and the supervision comes with a few rules. For those three years, Williams is not allowed to associate with any of his co-defendants or alleged gang members. Additionally, the rapper’s parole officer has permission to search his home from time to time. Lastly, Williams will have to enter a treatment program for drugs and alcohol.

Pooh Shiesty Confronts His Gun Charge In His New ‘Gone MIA’ Video

Last month, hitmaker Pooh Shiesty, responsible for the viral track “Back In Blood,” found out that he’ll be serving 63 months — a little over five years — in prison. He was indicted on four firearms charges in relation to a shooting incident that occurred in October 2020 at the Landon Hotel in Bay Harbor Islands, Florida. Williams later pled guilty to the charges after accepting a plea deal from prosecutors that reduced a possible life sentence to just 97 months in prison — a little over eight years in prison. So he has been expressing optimism and gratitude for the fact that he won’t be serving a longer sentence.

Today, the rapper released a music video for his song “Gone MIA” from Shiesty Season. It kicks off by immediately referencing the incident with a news broadcast about it. “Police say they are searching tonight for a rapper named Lontrell Williams,” the news broadcaster says. “They say he fled the scene in a green McClaren sports car.” The rest of the video watches him smoke and show off that green McClaren sports car.

Pooh Shiesty Shares A Message To Fans After Receiving A Five-Year Prison Sentence

Earlier this week, Pooh Shiesty (real name Lontrell Donell Williams Jr.) learned what he’s going to be up to for the next few years: He was sentenced to a bit over five years (63 months, to be exact) in prison over firearms charges. Now, in his first social media post since the sentencing, the rapper has shared a message for his fans.

Yesterday, Shiesty’s Instagram account shared a screenshot of an email from himself which reads, “The biggest.. I just wanna thank all my love ones. Supporters. And fans for holding me down during these hard times. I wish I could be comingg home to yall today but this couldve been wayyyy worse, I will be back sooner than yall think ! But meantime new music dropping next week, blrrrd!!!”

Shiesty’s tone sounds optimistic, which is understandable given that he’s correct when it comes to this situation turning out far better than it could have: His sentence follows a plea deal that allowed him to avoid a potential life sentence.

Meanwhile, Shiesty is coming off a big 2021, when “Back In Blood” was such a success that it was YouTube’s top-trending music video of the year.
