#gossip #drama #hollywood #celebrity
Rapper Mo Fayne‘s going away for a long, long time for his role in a PPP loan fraud case … he’s just been sentenced to 210 months in prison — that’s 17.5 years.
According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star was hit with the prison sentence after pleading guilty to 6 counts, including bank and wire fraud.
Remember … prosecutors alleged he funded a lavish lifestyle during the pandemic with money from the Paycheck Protection Program. The money was intended to help employees and small businesses hit hard by COVID.
Fayne had cut a plea deal with prosecutors … who agreed to drop 14 other charges and recommend Fayne get a 151-month sentence. Instead … the judge hit him with nearly 5 more years behind bars. The silver lining … he was staring down a possible 30-year sentence if he didn’t cut that deal, so take that for what it’s worth.
After he’s released from prison … Fayne will be on 5 years of supervised release. He also has to pay a huge restitution bill … a whopping $4,465,865.55.
As we reported … Mo was accused of buying tons of jewelry and paying off a bunch of personal debt … including child support … with the PPP dough.
