Record artist Ralo was recently sentenced to eight years in federal prison. He was awaiting trial after he was arrested in 2018 when federal agents charged him with trafficking marijuana worth $2 million.
Also known as Terrell Davis, his latest Instagram post states,
“The judge sentenced Ralo to 8 years in federal prison, he was sentenced to over 4 years credited time. The BOP also credited him with 1.5 years for good time.
The post continued and said,
“He was recommended for a one-year ankle monitor after the halfway house approved his home address; which will bring him home at the end of next year, but our goal is for him to complete his GED or RDAP Drug program so we can get another year of his sentence. This will bring him home in less than a year. We need prayer.
Fees charged to Ralo
Ralo was held in DeKalb County Jail for four years after his 2018 arrest. He had been awaiting trial for a long time and finally got a court date two months ago.
In 2018, the US District Court received an affidavit alleging he was the leader of a criminal street gang, Famerica. Federal agents say the gang was responsible for smuggling $2 million worth of marijuana from California to Georgia.
The gang was called Famgoon, according to federal documents, and made about two known cross-country runs using charter flights. He tried to be positive during his time in prison and informed his fans in October 2021 that he was optimistic about the future. He wrote on Instagram at the time,
“My judge scheduled my whole case to be finished in December. My lawyers are asking for time served. I need letters and good people who are willing to come forward and testify that they will help keep me on track while I am on probation for 3 years.
He went on and said,
“I also agreed to talk to young people. Please identify the right people who would do this and go to famericanews.com, scroll down and click on the link (Write Judge Ralo) #FreeRalo.
