NBA YoungBoy Faces New Charges In Drug Fraud Case

by UNN Feed

NBA YoungBoy‘s legal troubles continue to get worse as he now faces more charges in his prescription drug fraud case.

YoungBoy (real name Kentrell Gaulden) was previously charged with 63 counts relating to identity fraud, forgery, obtaining a prescription under false pretences, possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, a pattern of unlawful activity and possession of a controlled substance.

The controversial rapper has now had more charges added to his sheet including possession of a firearm by a restricted person and two counts of obtaining a prescription without permission, according to KUTV.

Weber County’s Attorney’s Office in Utah have requested the 24-year-old continue to be held without bail and stated: “There is clear and convincing evidence that the defendant would constitute a substantial danger to any other individual or to the community, or is likely to flee the jurisdiction of the court, if released on bail.”

YoungBoy was arrested last month in connection with a prescription drug fraud ring in Utah.

YoungBoy’s alleged scheme worked like this, according to the affidavit: “A suspect calls in a prescription, claiming the identity of a real doctor and using a fraudulent patient name and birthday, all for Promethazine with Codeine. Sometime after the prescriptions are called in, they are filled and picked up by [YoungBoy and/or people referred to as ‘Known Associates’ 1 and 2].”

The rapper even allegedly impersonated a doctor during the scheme but raised suspicion when he used the word “axed” instead of “asked.”

YoungBoy has yet to comment on his arrest or the additional charges he now faces.
