Ivey was arrested last November for allegedly busting into a Las Vegas apartment, wielding a gun and forcing the occupant into a bathroom while he and his female prostitute accomplice, Shantrice Wilkerson, robbed the place taking two iPads, two laptops, passports, and practically emptying out the joint.

Since Ivey decided to take the plea deal, four of the five felony charges against him were dropped and only the felony robbery charge stuck. In exchange for the deal, Ivey would only face a minimum of three and a half years and up to  a maximum ten years depending on what a judge hands down.

Ivey will face sentencing on September 12.

The young man and his famous dad were locked up in the same jail in March when Coolio was arrested on warrants stemming from multiple traffic violations.

When Ivey (pictured far right) appeared on his family’s 2008 reality show, he went by the name of Artis. The show focused on Coolio’s exploits as a musician, bachelor looking for love and single dad trying to raise four teens.

The show was axed after six episodes.
