SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A Shreveport rap artist will spend the rest of his life behind bars for dealing drugs in Caddo Parish.

A Caddo District Judge gave Anthony Mandigo his life sentence without parole on Wednesday. 

The court ruled that Mandigo was a four-time felony offender, and handed down the life sentence based on the Habitual Offender Law. 

From Oct. 20
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A Shreveport rapper faces life in prison for dealing drugs.

Thomas Mandigo was arrested in April on drug possession charges. He was found guilty of the crime several weeks ago.

Prosecutor Jason Jones said that Mandigo glorified his gangster and drug selling lifestyle with videos placed on You Tube.

Monday, a Caddo judge determined that Mandigo is a four-time felony offender, and that's something that he can consider during sentencing, according to the multi-offender bill.

Mandigo is set to be sentenced next Tuesday. Jones expects a life sentence.
