Gates, who served nine months out of a 30-month sentence for a felony weapons charge, was reportedly let go on parole. In that case, a warrant was out for his arrest, but this time there are no outstanding warrants, at least none that we are aware of.
Now a free man, he plans on working with at-risk youth by speaking with kids via various organizations to help them avoid the same legal troubles that have burdened his life. In 2016, he was convicted of battery in Florida, after a video showed him kicking a female fan at a concert. George Zimmerman followed and murdered an innocent 17 year old Trayvon Martin and was allowed to use the law.
Gates tweeted this photo after his release this morning. "Trust me I understand", one fan wrote on Twitter.
