Reactions to News of Scrapp’s Current Release Date

Karen was anticipating an earlier release date of later in 2018. July 2019 was not good enough for her. KK’s son has been on his best behavior and deserves to be released sooner, according to the LHHATL star and prison mom.

When Scrapp called her from prison, she explained to him what the bondsman told her. Scrapp was upset by the news. He argued that he had no disciplinary infractions. For this, he believes he should get to serve 1/3 of the time of his sentence.

He asked his mother to call the parole board and be aggressive with them so she gets some answers. There’s no doubt KK will do just that.

Unless any changes come up Scrapp DeLeon will be released from prison in July 2019.
