Migos’ Offset Free After Pleading Guilty, Given Five Years Probation



Offset, member of Atlanta rap group Migos, was released from jail on Friday, Dec. 4.

Mark Winne of WSB made the announcement via Twitter.

“#migos member #offset pleads guilty to riot in penal inst but does not admit he did it (called Alford plea) #exclusive @wsbtv.”



“#Migos hip hop star #offset gets 5 yrs probation, $1000 fine, banishment from circuit @wsbtv,” he wrote.



Twitter user @Ecalevol asked Winne if Offset was free, to which the reporter responded, “Being processed I understand.”



Winne elaborated Offset is banished from four counties comprising the Ogeechee Judicial Circuit.



Winne also stated Offset’s plea deal “clears way for possible favorable resolution” for TakeOff and Quavo.



TakeOff and Quavo also appeared in court today.

According to Winne, Takeoff pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce of pot, which gave him a chance to have no conviction.



Quavo pleaded “no contest misdemeanor pot charge—less than an oz 12 months suspended based on payment of fine,” according to Winne.



Migos affiliate, Rich The Kid, confirmed Offset was free with pic posted onto Twitter.

“I GOT MY BOYS BAKKKK!!!!” he wrote on Twitter.



Offset’s freedom comes after the rapper’s multiple attempts to post bail. Offset was denied bail in a court hearing on Friday, Oct. 9. Prosecutors allegedly painted Offset as a big-time gang leader, which the Atlanta MC denies, according to TMZ. The prosecutor said Offset’s “gang-related tattoos” on his body show he’s the CEO of the Black Migos Gang. Offset defended himself saying Black Migos Gang is just a record label.

Migos’ Offset was also denied bail in court on Friday, May 9 due to his extensive criminal history, according to the Statesboro Herald.

A jail fight Offset was involved also played a factor in the judge’s decision to deny him bail in that hearing.

Offset, 24, was reportedly charged with battery and causing a riot in a penal institution after a fight in the Bulloch County jail, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The violent incident was captured on video.

Offset, a convicted felon, was arrested after police nabbed him and fellow bandmates Quavo and TakeOff for possession of drugs and guns during their performance at Georgia Southern University.

The trio were arrested on felony possession of c------, Oxycontin and codeine plus charges of carrying a loaded weapon in a school zone, according to TMZ. Quavo and TakeOff have since posted $10,000 bails apiece.





The three members of the Migos were charged as follows:

Quavious Marshall (Quavo) (24 yoa, Lawrenceville Ga): Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Substance, Possession of Marijuana (misd), Possession of a Firearm in a School Safety Zone, and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Crime

Kirschnick Ball (TakeOff) (20 yoa, Lawrenceville Ga): Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Substance, Possession of Marijuana (misd), Possession of a Firearm in a School Safety Zone, and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Crime

Kiari Cephus (Offset) (23 yoa, Lawrenceville Ga): Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Substance, Possession of Marijuana (misd), Possession of a Firearm in a School Safety Zone, and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Crime”
