TMZ reports that Gates’ lawyer Herschel Rush has revealed that the Louisiana musician will dedicate substantial time to sharing his personal story with troubled youth once he’s released on Wednesday (January 10). Gates plans to share his story with the Boys & Girls Club, among other organizations.
In total, Gates has served roughly nine months out of a 30-month sentence at Illinois East Moline Correctional Facility.
After serving five months in Florida for kicking a woman at a 2015 concert, Gates was given additional time for an outstanding weapons-related warrant.
As part of the reported conditions of his release on parole, Gates will be required to undergo mandatory supervision and won’t be allowed to possess any firearms.
