Germaine "Jell-O" Wallace gets fifteen years for prostituion ring run through strip clubs
Not anymore. Wallace was busted in November 2010, and he's since surrendered the home, the guns and more. But the following May, when his name made headlines, he was free on bail, and his attorney, Harvey Steinberg, best known for representing professional athletes in trouble, told the Denver Post, "Don't believe everything you read."
This bravado didn't translate into freedom for Wallace. While the felony pimping charges against Kelly, Wilson, Weeks and Laughead eventually went away, prosecutors maintained their taste for Jell-O. On Monday, about a year and a half after his arrest, he pleaded guilty to pimping and possession of a controlled substance -- some ecstasy was found in his home when it was searched -- and was immediately given a fifteen-year sentence.
At the conclusion of the hearing, Wallace's victim, who now lives out of state, watched as he was led away in handcuffs. Guess the folks at the Colorado Department of Corrections believe there's always room for Jell-O.
