The 22 year old Memphis Rapper, Lontrell Williams, was happy with the decision from U.S. District Judge Kevin Michael Moore in Miami Federal Court in understanding that it could be worst. Shiesty reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors that allowed for a sentence of up to eight years and one month in prison, his lawyer said. In turn, he only ended up with five.
