Atlanta, GA – Ty Dolla $ign was facing 15 years in prison after reportedly being busted by Atlanta police for possession of cocaine and marijuana in Septemeber. Now, the Grammy Award-winning star has been exonerated of all charges after successfully completing a drug program with high marks, The Blast reports.
The 34-year-old Los Angeles native born Tyrone William Griffin Jr. was indicted on November 30 and his lawyer, Steven Sadow, was able to negotiate a sweet deal with Georgia prosecutors that would give the Ty a fresh start.
Completion of an online drug-prevention program, staying out of trouble and away from drugs were all part of the deal. The multi-talented musician was also subject to random drug testing while completing Georgia’s 13-week Second Chance program.
Following Ty Dolla’s November arrest, his attorney Drew Findling insisted that the marijuana and cocaine police reportedly found during their search did not belong to the Taylor Gang artist.
“He had no drugs on his person at all,” Findling told Channel Action 2 News. “Apparently there was a small amount of some drug found in the car, and they let five people walk away. And they let the international superstar go into custody.”
With the drug charges gone and behind him, expect more new music from Ty Dolla as he preps for the release of his third solo LP. He dropped the lead single for his next project, “Purple Emoji” featuring J. Cole in May.
