Young Thug‘s brother Unfoonk has been sentenced to prison for probation violation.

According to WSB-TV, the sentence was handed down on Monday (June 5) by Judge Ural Glanville, who issued a stern warning to the aspiring rapper (real name Quantavious Grier) before handing down a sentence of nine years and six months behind bars.

“Part of the special condition was that you were not supposed to possess a gun,” the judge said in his sentencing. “And the state was pretty clear. I find, based upon a preponderance of the evidence, that the state has proved its case that you have violated your probation.”

He continued: “Your attorney has asked me to consider a revocation of two years. And I certainly respect her, and I respect that you don’t know unless you ask. But the issue I find aggravating in this particular circumstance is that you got arrested with a gun within six months of you being placed on probation. And I agree with the state: you are not a candidate for probation. Because all you had to do was complete your probation and do what you’re supposed to do. Instead, you were ridin’ around in the car with a gun in violation of your probation, in what this court explicitly had conversations with you about.”

UNFOONK was arrested on a gun charge, just a few months after accepting to a plea deal in the Young Slime Life (YSL) RICO case.

He was placed into the Fulton County Jail on charges of possessing a firearm by a convicted felon, persons associated with a criminal street gang to participate in illegal activity and other minor traffic offenses.

Unfoonk previously entered a guilty plea to one count of violating the RICO Act and one count of  theft by receiving stolen property.

He agreed to a deal that included 10 years of probation and a 12-year sentence with two years commuted to time served.

His probation conditions included not having any contact with Young Thug and other defendants until the case is over, performing 750 hours of community service, abiding by a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew and not having a gun.

 Unfoonk took to his Instagram Stories to deny rumors about him snitching on Young Thug, after accepting his plea deal in December.

“Damn people really think I told on my own brother smh,” he wrote at the time. “Show me in the paper work I told on anybody lol, I’m not even fenna entertain any of it, peace and blessings.”
