Kevin Gates Sentenced to Six Months in Jail for Kicking Female Fan
Additionally, the judge ordered one year of probation. Gates sentence was three times what prosecutors requested. Gates was caught on video kicking a woman in the chest last August at his show, after claiming that the woman, 19 year-old Miranda Dixon, was grabbing and tugging on his shorts. Gates claimed he used physical force for his own safety.
However, Dixon says Gates kicked her so hard that she fell back and later blacked out, and that she had pain in her upper stomach for a month after the incident. The jury (made up of six white women) deliberated for two hours before returning a guilty sentence and ultimately tripling the sentence requested.
