substantial time to sharing his personal story with troubled youth once he’s released on Wednesday (January 10).
Gates plans to share his story with the Boys & Girls Club, among other organizations.
In total, Gates has served roughly nine months out of a 30-month sentence at Illinois East Moline
After serving five months in Florida for kicking a woman at a 2015 concert, Gates was given
additional time for an outstanding weapons-related warrant.

supervision and won’t be allowed to possess any firearms.
