YFN Lucci has been hit with a 20-year sentence after pleading guilty to one count of violation of the street gang terrorism and prevention act. He accepts 10 years in prison followed by an additional 10 years of probation. The rapper also enters the sentence with time served dating back to January 13, 2021, as well as a letter from the State to the pardon and parole board confirming it will not object to his early release. Altogether WSB-TV's Michael Seiden reports he will likely only spend about 3.5 more months behind bars.

Prior to his plea, Lucci faced several more counts, including felony murder, which carried a maximum penalty of life without parole. Prior to the sentence reading, Lucci apologized to the victim’s family as well as his own friends and loved ones.

Lucci’s attorney, Drew Findling, addressed afterward whether his client will have to testify during the ongoing YSL RICO trial. "Anybody that says that is a liar," he began. "We all just went to court today. It's clear as day. There is no corporation in the YSL case. He will not be testifying in that case. If anybody wants to subpoena him, we'll file a subpoena to squash that subpoena. He wants nothing to do with that case. He's made that clear. For three and a half years, he has said he knows nothing and will not participate in that case."
