Lupe Fiasco Mentor Denied Appeal in Drug Case

Charles “Chilly” Patton, Lupe Fiasco’s incarcerated mentor and business partner, will not be leaving jail any time soon.

According to the Associated Press, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal by Patton earlier today (April 5). As previously reported Patton was sentenced in 2007 to 44 years behind bars for drug conspiracy.

The charges stem from a 2003 arrest where he was found with 13 pounds of heroin. At the time of the bust, he also was in possession of a loaded gun.

Patton’s lawyers tried to appeal the ruling, arguing that during his trial jurors weren’t questioned by his judge on whether they had any prejudice against firearms.

The Illinois Appellate Court didn’t allow an appeal to be granted, saying that the judge did not have to ask about potential firearm bias. —Elan Mancini
