Future's Eldest Son Arrested, Faces Up To 20 Years In Prison: Report

Future's eldest son, Jakobi Wilburn, is reportedly facing up to 20 years behind bars.
According to court papers obtained by Bossip, the 17-year-old was arrested late last month on multiple charges including criminal gang activity, criminal trespass and altered ID of a firearm (he's accused of being in possession of a gun with the serial numbers scratched off).
Despite technically being a minor, Georgia law considers 17-year-olds as adults, which means if Jakobi is convicted, he faces five to 20 years in prison on the gang activity charge alone, per Georgia statutes.
Being that Jakobi's arrest was called "a massive gang roundup," the teen has several co-defendants in the case. According to the court documents, Jakobi is listed as being “indigent” (in financial need) and was given a public defender for the case. Sources told Bossip the court looked at the teen’s income, not Future’s, when deciding his financial status. His next court hearing has not been set.
As fans know, Future is the father of six children. However, the "Life Is Good" rapper is currently facing two paternity lawsuits as two women claim he is the father of their children.
Back in 2012, Jakobi's mother, Jessica White, sued Future, born Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn, for paternity and child support.
A source told TMZ Future will be covering his son's legal fees. Jakobi's mom additionally told the outlet, she and Future have been on top of their son's legal situation as they are both actively involved in his life. "Our son is a minor and to protect his well being in this trying situation, we ask that everyone please respect our privacy at this time," she added.
