The singer from the group Pretty Ricky, received a sentence of 20 months in prison for taking a plea deal in the PPP loan fraud case.

An update came from Pretty Ricky‘s  Baby blue about his fast approaching sentence and he has given fans information on how to send him mail. The artist ended up in trouble with the law after he stood accused of defrauding the government through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Blue was one of several people named in an investigation where authorities reportedly discovered that millions of dollars in PPP loan funds were used not to help those in dire need during the pandemic, but to pay for luxury items.
 

A plea deal was made that helped to curb what would have been a much more lengthy prison stint after issuing a warning about PPP Loans

“In my opinion, the best way to stay safe from everything going on surrounding these PPP Loans is just stay away from them,” Blue previously stated. “Don’t discuss them with anyone. Don’t give anyone your information. Don’t attempt to do it yourself. IT IS NOT WORTH IT. You can repair your credit and get a conventional loan from your local bank. Don’t get caught up in this PPP thing because it’s not worth it.”

More recently, he dropped off what is to be his new address for the next 20 months.
