Herschel Rush, Gates’ lawyer told TMZ he was “very pleased with the result” as the gun charges carried a 10-year maximum prison sentence.

Gates was arrested on an outstanding warrant on March 30, the same day he was expected to be released from Florida prison. The outstanding warrant was issued because Gates failed to appear in court regarding the gun charge in 2013.

Gates had just spent 180 days in jail after kicking a woman in the face during one of his concerts in 2015.
