NBA YoungBoy has been granted to modify the conditions to his house arrest rules after being arrested on a prior gun charge in Baton Rouge.
According to court documents acquired by AllHipHop, Judge Shelly Dick decided to modify the conditions of YoungBoy’s house arrest on Wednesday (March 15). The rapper will be permitted to have more than three visits without having a curfew at his house after the Louisiana court removed two conditions from his supervised release.
According to the documents, “The Court issues this written Order modifying condition number 18 and condition number 19 of the Order Setting Conditions of Release, Document 142 filed on October 27, 2021, for the Defendant, [NBA YoungBoy (real name Kentrell Gaulden)],”
They continued: “It is hereby ordered that condition number 18 and condition number 19 of the Defendant’s Order Setting Conditions of Release are modified as follows: (18) No more than three persons may visit Gaulden at his home at any time. (19) No visitors are allowed at the Defendant’s home before 7 a.m. or after 9 p.m. ‘Home’ is defined as the Defendant’s residence and all property and appurtenances of the residence. It is so ordered. Signed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, this 15th day of March 2023.”
YoungBoy was freed on $1.5 million bond and placed under house arrest in October 2021 after being charged on two federal gun charges. In addition to his wife, a producer, and his business manager, who all lived in his house, his parole only allowed him to have three guests at once. The rapper fought back and filed a plea to be released from house detention in July, but it was rejected.
The rapper talked to Billboard last month about his present condition. YoungBoy, who has been under house arrest in Utah, referred to it as his “best experience.” He added that the experience changed his perspective on both life and music.
“I’m very scared right now,” he said later in the article. “It’s just natural. I’m not big on people. I never knew why once I walked on the stage, I could get it done and leave — but I am terrified of people. People are cruel. This is a cruel place.”
He added: “You’ve got to be thankful for it. It’s very beautiful, you know? There’s so much you can experience inside of it. But it is a very cruel place. And it’s not my home.”
In the interview, NBA YoungBoy also disclosed his intentions to switch to Mormon. While under house arrest, missionaries visited him, and he credited the Christian ideology with helping pull him out of a dark place.
YoungBoy said that after first turning them away when they knocked on his door, he then changed his mind and let them inside. After that, missionaries made daily visits to the rapper, discussing The Book of Mormon with him and making sure his “heart was in the right place” for baptism.
Once his house detention is ended, the rapper stated he intends to be baptized into The Church of Latter-Day Saints. “I wanted help very badly. I needed a friend. And it hit me,” he admitted. “It was just cool to see someone with a different mindset that had nothing to do with business or money — just these wonderful souls.”
