Ty Dolla $ign's Drug Case Wiped From His Criminal Record After Completing Drug Classes

By Ryan Naumann

Rapper Ty Dolla $ign has successfully completed his sentence relating to his 2018 cocaine arrest.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the rapper has finished his pretrial intervention program with high marks. He completed all requirements of his deal with prosecutors and the two felonies and one misdemeanor charges will now be gone from his record forever.

Ty Dolla $ign avoided being thrown in jail on the charges back in February when his lawyer, Steven Sadow, was able to negotiate a deal with Georgia prosecutors.

Per the deal, his record would be wiped clean if he stayed out of trouble for a couple of months. He also had to complete an online drug prevention program and stay away from drugs. The rapper had to complete a program called Second Chance, which ran about 13 weeks.

He was also subject to random drug testing.

Back in September 2018, Ty Dolla $ign was arrested with six others after being stopped while driving near Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. in Atlanta.

Police claimed they smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle and, upon a search, discovered marijuana and cocaine.

Ty was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana less than an ounce, possession of cocaine, and possession and use of drug-related objects. The six other occupants in the car were released without charges.

Ty Dolla $ign wasn’t playing around with the charges and hired the powerhouse ATL lawyer Steve Sadow to represent him in the case. Sadow has helped defend everyone from T.I. and Usher in high-profile cases.

Sadow represented rapper T.I. in his criminal case where he was accused of simple assault, public drunkenness, and disorderly conduct against his neighborhood security guard.

Usher hired Sadow to rep him in the legal battle with a Georgia woman named Laura Helm, who sued the singer for allegedly giving her herpes.

Both cases have since been closed.
