On December 11th, Morgan officially pleaded guilty to his one count of narcotics distribution.
Billboard reports that the prosecution agreed to a “stipulated sentencing guideline range,” which suggests that Morgan will likely serve less than a year in prison on a charge dealt up to 20 years. His sentencing is scheduled for March 13th.
