G Herbo Avoids Prison Time In Federal Wire Fraud Case

G Herbo‘s attorneys have managed to help the rapper avoid prison time in a wire fraud case that saw him support his flashy lifestyle through the use of stolen credit cards.

The Chicago rapper was sentenced to three years’ probation on Thursday (January 11) following a 2023 plea deal for his part in a plan to use stolen identities to fund private jets, a Jamaican villa and designer puppies.

The sentence corresponds to exactly what Herbo’s attorneys had asked for, despite prosecutors’ requests that the “We Don’t Care” rapper be required to serve a year and one day in prison, per KIRO. Their sentencing memo also proposed 36 months of supervised release following the suggested jail time.

In addition to probation, G Herbo has been ordered to pay $139,968 each in restitution and forfeiture and a fine of $5,500. He previously had to fork over $140,000, which is what prosecutors believe he profited from the $1.5 million scheme.

According to the sentencing memo, the judge presiding over this case deemed that, “Under the circumstances of this case, a sentence of probation will reflect the seriousness of the charge and protect the public.”

The rapper was first charged in the case back in late 2020. The federal fraud case brought in Massachusetts alleged that the rapper, his music promoter and other members of his crew “used stolen identifications to charge more than a million dollars’ worth of exotic services over a four-year period.”

The 14-count indictment stated Herbo and his associates scammed trips on private jets, limousine rides, exotic car rentals, a vacation at a Jamaican villa and even two designer puppies purchased for Herbo from a Michigan dealer in 2017.

The scheme “centered on the defendants’ use of stolen credit card information and personal identities obtained either from the ‘dark web’ or other sources.” A charge of lying to agents was added the following year.

The 28-year-old pleaded guilty to wire fraud charges in the summer of 2023. He made it clear at the time that he didn’t expect his associates to fold on him.

At the time, the Chicago rapper took to his Instagram Stories to express his thoughts on not being snitched on — which appeared to be subtle shade towards Gunna, who has been accused of snitching on Thugga by taking a plea deal in the ongoing YSL RICO case.
