Kevin Gates paid a visit to the Elayn Hunt Correctional Center earlier this year to check in with his father and Corey “C-Murder” Miller. During their time together, Gates was captured in a photo flaunting dozens of hundred dollar bills, which is against prison policy.
He also put the photo on his Instagram account and tagged the prison.
As a result, the Department of Public Safety and Corrections launched an investigation to look into Gates’ visit. Now, The Advocate reports Gates has been banned from all Louisiana corrections institutions and two correctional officers have been disciplined for their involvement.
State corrections department spokesman Ken Pastorick explained it was against policy for any visitors to bring more than $300 into the prison.
A DOC report dated July 24 found Deputy Warden Perry Stagg and Major Jason Linzy, who both oversaw Gates’ visit, “deviated from standard institutional policies, resulting in multiple rule violations.”
The report explained Stagg met Gates when he arrived at Elayn Hunt and Linzy supervised the visit when the photos were snapped.
