Coolio - Coolio's Son Facing At Least Three Years In Prison

Rapper Coolio's eldest son is facing more than three years in prison after striking a plea deal relating to allegations of armed robbery.
Grtis Ivey, 22, and his female friend Shantrice Wilkerson are accused of breaking into an apartment in Las Vegas on 29 October (11) and threatening the tenant with a gun, forcing him into a bathroom while they ransacked the place for valuables.
They reportedly made off with two laptops, two iPads and a safe, but were later identified by the victim and were taken into custody by cops on 14 November (11).
Ivey was slapped with charges including grand larceny, robbery with a deadly weapon and first degree kidnapping, but he recently agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors which will see him confess to a count of felony robbery in exchange for the remaining accusations being dropped.
As part of the agreement, Ivey will be handed a minimum of three-and-a-half years behind bars when he is officially sentenced on 12 September (12), according to Tmz.com.
However, the judge reserves the right to jail him for up to 10 years.
Ironically, Ivey was detained in the same jail as his hip-hop star father Coolio back in November (11) after cops discovered two active bench warrants for the Gangsta's Paradise hitmaker's arrest after he was pulled over during a routine traffic stop.
