Thot King has gone from making rap videos to being careful not to drop the soap. Back in June, the Columbus, Ohio rapper born Eric. D. Chavis plead guilty to recruiting underage girls to appear in his music videos, and he was just sentenced to 15 years in the bing. 

The struggle rapper plead guilty to conspiracy to produce child pornography. The sentence could have been even worse.

Reports the Columbus Dispatch:

It could have been much worse for Eric D. Chavis, 24, of the Southeast Side.

“If the victims were young children, probably the number would be much higher,” U.S. District Judge Michael H. Watson told Chavis at his sentencing on Tuesday.

The girls in Chavis’ videos were 16 and 17.

Watson stuck with the 15-years sentence that the prosecution and defense agreed on when Chavis pleaded guilty in June to conspiracy to produce child pornography. The sentence is the mandatory minimum under federal statutes for Chavis’ offense; the maximum is 30 years. Sentencing guidelines allow as long as a life sentence.

“These victims were all mature, but not of legal age,” the judge said. “You trolled the Internet to entice underage performers to come and make music videos with you and others.”

In the initial complaint against Davis, he was accused of giving a 16-year-old girl Hennessy and marijuana in exchange for appearing nude in his sexually explicit video.

It is illegal to post sexually explicit photos of anyone under 18, per federal law, though.
