Kevin Gates was found guilty of battery in the 2015 incident at a Florida club, in which he kicked a woman that tugged on his shorts during his performance.

According to The Ledger, a jury of six women took less than two hours to find the rapper guilty, and the judge sentenced him to 180 days in jail – which was three times more than what prosecutors requested for the misdemeanor battery conviction.

Kevin’s jail sentence started yesterday, and he was immediately taken into custody, reports TMZ.

Kevin’s wife, Dreka Gates, took to Instagram following his sentence to express her frustration.

“You mean to tell me that @iamkevingates kicked the girl in the red jumpsuit and knocked the breathe out her?” she wrote along with a video showing the incident. “Because that’s what she’s been claiming and testified today in court. If anything her friend choked the fuck out of her. She claims she fainted, but yet she and her friend stayed at the club at the front of the stage even after this incident.”

You mean to tell me that @iamkevingates kicked the girl in the red jumpsuit and knocked the breathe out her? Because that’s what she’s been claiming and testified today in court. If anything her friend choked the fuck out of her. She claims she fainted, but yet she and her friend stayed at the club at the front of the stage even after this incident. She also acquired a civil attorney early on…what does that tell you? She also touched him FIRST (more than once) without his consent but yet he was the one sentenced to jail today for the same crime. She and her friend also had very conflicting stories and were tripped up in many lies today in the courtroom. It was comical and sad at the same time to see how desperate people are for fame and money. Not to mention the prosecutors wanted to give him 60 days with anger management and community service but yet the judge decided to give him 180 days?!? Are you fucking kidding me. Inshallah justice will be served. #unjust #fuckery #polkcounty #smfh by the way, thanks for taking my husband away from our kids (sarcasm) #itsnotoverjustyet
