“If I didn’t take the plea, then it wouldn’t be handled and I would be sitting in jail right now,” Offset told WSBTV.Offset received five years of probation, a $1,000 fine plus surcharges, and was banned from the Ogeechee circuit, which comprises of several counties in Georgia.“That’s something like if a terrorist come over here or something,” said Offset on being banned. “We went there to do a show.”
Offset credits his mom and the Bible with helping him make it through his time in jail,. He found particular inspiration in the Book of Solomon.
“Maybe my eyes weren’t open for the bigger picture,” he reflected. “Because I wasn’t talking to God. To see what answers he would give me. I probably needed a little makeup work done on my character… I had to sit down to see my opportunity so I can take advantage of it to the most that I can.”
