NBA YoungBoy to Remain in Federal Custody Pending Pretrial Hearing

Following his arraignment on April 16, NBA YoungBoy finds himself entangled in a web of legal troubles, including prescription drug fraud and a slew of other charges. The Baton Rouge rapper, known for his prolific output, has been under house arrest in Utah due to federal weapons charges, but now faces additional allegations. These new charges include accusations of engaging in “patterns of unlawful activity, attempting to procure drugs, identity fraud, forgery, possession of controlled substances, and possession of a dangerous weapon,” as reported by social media personality DJ Akademiks.

NBA YoungBoy Pretrial Release Hearing On April 29

In a recent development, it has been disclosed that 24-year-old Kentrell Gaulden, also known as NBA YoungBoy, will remain in federal custody until his pretrial release hearing on April 29.

The Cache County Sheriff’s Office has implicated YoungBoy and his associates in the illegal acquisition of promethazine with codeine from pharmacies. Allegedly, they posed as doctors and patients to deceive pharmacists. Investigator Tyson Hyrum Nielsen revealed that YoungBoy, using the alias “Gwendolyn Cox,” attempted to disguise his identity during phone calls. Nielsen noted discrepancies in voice and dialect, indicating that YoungBoy was masquerading as an elderly woman.

“During the conversation with ‘Gwendolyn’ it was very clear that a fake voice was being used. ‘Gwendolyn’ sounded as though she was a much younger male from the southern states… Kentrell Gaulden continued to attempt to further the prescription fraud by talking about the prescription and saying, ‘she on the hospital bed,’ referring to the patient ‘Gwendolyn Cox’ from the previous day,” Nielsen stated. He also pointed out linguistic errors, such as using “axe” instead of “ask.”
