In December, Grier pleaded guilty to one count of violating the RICO Act and one count of theft by receiving stolen property.

Grier, whose rapper name is UNFOONK, accepted a 12-year sentence with two years commuted to time served and ten years probation.

Superstar rapper Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffery Williams, is Grier’s brother.


There are conditions that Grier must meet as part of his probation. He must not have any contact with his brother Young Thug and other defendants until the case is over. Grier must also perform 750 hours of community service, abide by a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew and cannot have a gun.

It is unclear how Grier’s arrest will affect the terms of his plea deal.
