Cap was originally charged with felony murder and possession of a firearm during a crime in 1998 and sentenced to life in prison back in 2000. But he was released in 2006 on parole, after new facts came to light in his case that pointed toward the possible use of self-defense.
But he wasn’t free very long. In 2009 he was named in an aggravated assault case, for allegedly helping rapper Killer Mike during a fight. His parole was subsequently revoked and in 2011, he was sent back to prison to serve time on his initial charges.
