“Compton” rapper Guerilla Black was sentenced to over 9 years in prison, 110 months to be exact, for credit card fraud. He was arrested last year for purchasing thousands of stolen credit card numbers from a hacker and was recently sentenced to over 9 years in prison on Friday, October 25th. According to US Attorney Jenny Durkan, Black actually bought over 27,000 credit card numbers from a hacker located in Maryland, along with various other illegal credit card sources, between January 2011 and February 2012. It’s unclear what Black specifically used all of credit card numbers for.
On top of his 110 month prison sentence, he will have to undergo five years of supervised release once he is is a free man again.
