Pretty Ricky Member Baby Blue Sentenced To 20 Months Behind Bars Over Wire Fraud Conspiracy
Baby Blue will soon begin doing time for his involvement in a fraud scheme.
As previously reported, Baby Blue of Pretty Ricky was accused of being involved in a $24 million wire fraud scheme last year. Specifically, the R&B star was accused of fraudulently receiving Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, and he allegedly used some of these funds to purchase himself a Ferrari.
A few months later, news also broke that Baby Blue would ultimately plead guilty over the matter. He ended up admitting to falsifying documents to obtain two PPP loans for $426,717 and $708,065.
Now, there has been an update to the situation regarding Baby Blue‘s sentencing. News recently broke that the 37-year-old artist was sentenced to 20 months behind bars last week for his involvement in the wire fraud conspiracy. On top of this, he was also ordered pay over $2 million in restitution and forfeiture.
When commenting on the matter, Baby Blue reportedly remarked:
“The judge was fair.”
It’s currently unclear when the singer will begin serving out his sentence.
He also appeared to address the matter on Instagram yesterday (Wednesday, Dec. 22nd). He wrote:
“I can’t go back and change the beginning, but I can start where I am and change the ending. There are things in life we don’t want to happen but have to accept; Lessons in life we don’t want to know but have to learn. We have to remember that life’s greatest lessons are usually learned at the worst times and from the worst mistakes. Sometimes the bad things that happens to us end up putting us on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us.”
Baby Blue continued:
“Life can change in a second, can be taken in a second so live your best life! Do what you can for others. Always be there for the ones you love the most and understand that not everyone you love will stay, not everyone you trust will be loyal. Some people are lessons. Some people exist as an example of what to avoid. Learn from yesterday, live for today, prepare for a better tomorrow.”
