No, it was for armed robbery. Here's an article I found concerning him and also Daphne's murder:

HIP-HOP, MURDER & KIDNAP:

In 1996, Lathan Williams a.k.a. ‘Young Lay’ (pictured above) was on the fast track to rap stardom. He was celebrating the success of a hit single and an upcoming album featuring the already legendary Tupac Shakur. Lay and Tupac also had the same manager, Leila Steinberg.

Lay’s career took off when his single ‘All About My Feeti,’ appeared on volume one of the ‘New Jersey Drive’ soundtrack in 1995. The soundtrack linked Lay to more established names on the East Coast rap scene, Biggie, Queen Latifah and Outkast. The record went gold and Lay signed on with Atlantic Records.

Just when his career seemed to be taking off, a gunshot wound to the head left him in a coma. He was shot while traveling in the passenger seat of a car in Vallejo, Ca. Lay would emerge from the coma after two weeks and fully recover. It was the second time Lay had been shot. He had been shot in the back when he was younger.

Lay would also plead no contest and was fined $170 for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana. A month later, the D.A. charged him with felony drug possession for which he was convicted on put on probation.

A few months later, police reported finding three rocks of cocaine weighing just over a half of gram in Lay’s mouth. He pleaded not guilty and posted the $7,500 in bail to get out of jail. While out on probation, he was cited for possessing an open container of alcohol in a car. He was sentenced to five years probation and one year in jail and required to complete a drug treatment program.

Later that year, Lay would become a new father, in April of that year, his girlfriend Daphne Boyden gave birth to their son, Le-Zhan.

A month later in May, Daphne Boyden was shot and burned to death by two 15-year old fellow high school students and her baby was kidnapped.

Police theorized, someone set fire to Daphne’s corpse to cover up the crime.

Six years later, acting on an anonymous tip, Vallejo police recovered Le-Zhan Williams, the son of Young Lay. Police arrested 22-year old Latasha Brown (murder and kidnap) and her cousin Ocianetta Williams (murder and kidnap) and Latasha’s mother Delores Ann Brown (for aiding and abetting).

The police say Latasha Brown had a forged birth certificate, claiming she was Le-Zhan’s mother. Police suspect Brown’s aunt, a Texas nurse, may have altered the birth certificate.

According to witness testimony, Daphne Boyden was nursing her infant son when Latasha Brown leaned over the couch, hugged her good-bye and shot her.

Although the police say there is no clear motive in the case, they suspect a connection between Latasha Brown and the baby’s father (Young Lay). There’s some speculation that Brown had a relationship with the father Lathan Williams and that she had been jealous of Daphne Boyden’s relationship and the fact that she had a child with him, especially with ‘Young Lay’ being famous, and her intent was to take the child away.

After DNA confirmed Le-Zhan’s identity, he was reunited with his family.

Latasha Brown was convicted and sentenced to 37 years to life in prison.

Ocianetta Williams was convicted and sentenced to 14 years in prison.

Delores Brown received a year in jail in 2003 for helping to conceal the kidnapped child.

Sadly, ‘Young Lay’s’ career derailed when increasing problems with the law landed him in state prison in Susanville with a 12-year sentence for armed robbery.

Oh god, I'm glad I've returned to the messageboard and I'm glad I'm not the only one who have found re-enactments unintentionally funny. Here's my top 5:

1. Susan, "you're being bad again."

2. The fat kidnapper who had to write down the instructions, and lost them in the parking garage. He also nearly gave away his identify to the CEO by asking if who would cover for him when he wasn't at work and then left him in a field and got no money. Crystal, can you help identify this one? I saw it on your DVD's and totally forgot about it and almost died laughing. Was there ever an update?

3. The guy who claimed Bigfoot chased him through the woods.

4. The guy who needed to a flight so bad he jumped on the back of a plane in flight. The actor playing him was so dead on. Was there ever an update in this case and does anyone know which segment I'm talking about?

5. The non-English speaking guy who saw a murder in the fields in Florida and said the body was buried behind a building that looked like an ice cream cone. What the heck?!?!?!

The man who was kidnapped was John Grundhofer. As far as I know the kidnapper was never caught.

Yes the man who jumped off the plane was identified as Brian Stanley Deucker. Apparently he suffered from schizophrenia. Here is an article:

Oh gosh, reading through these has made me laugh!

The "just bah Co-Wince-EH-Dence" case!

Man I wanted to slap the smirk right off that ex husband's arrogant smug pie hole!

"He was really in love with me"

"Aw NO Way man, because she was gunna marry wit muh brother, and that would make her like mah sister, that would be incest, and we in mah fahm-lee don't go in for that sorta thang!"

Is he really sure about that???

That whole bunch made the Beverly Hillbillies look like English Royalty!

And THEN to have it proven that that poor dude's death really just a random act of violence by a stranger.

I can easily picture the film crew wrapping up, and while driving back to their hotel unanimously deciding NOT to edit any of the footage out!

Then, Franklyn Floyd proclaiming, "If YEW all knew the TROOOOOOTH, ya'll 'ud pin a MEDDDDAL on me!"

yeah, they'd pin something to him all right.

That guy was very much unintentionally funny.

Another one was a lady looking for her something like 9 or 10 brothers and sisters after they'd been split up when their father had murdered their mother.

Toward the beginning of the segment, it shows the family, which the girl describes as "typically Leave it to Beaver", all sitting down to dinner.
What made me laugh was, after saying grace, the father starts dishing out spaghetti, but doesn't put any sauce on it, and just gives the kids the plates of plain noodles.

One poor kid only gets about 4 noodles on his plate, and acts euphoric to get that. (ACT, Jimmy, ACT!!!)

Apparently Dad was a real peach when sober, but a monster when drunk.

I remember that. That was the James Vest(sp?) family. He was a nasty drunk. His wife Wanda left him after 17 years. When she was working as a barmaid one night, her soon to be former hubby came to her work and shot her.

I always thought the beginning of that segment was funny. Sad story, but that part was a bit amusing.

I can't remember the episode, but it was the one where the man killed his girlfriend while her mom/aunt (I'm not clear on this part, either) went out to buy smokes, then tried to kill mom/aunt when she got back. Of course, we'll all remember this line from when mom/aunt recalled the attack...

"...and I heard that ol' bowlin' ball roll...."

Oh the bowling ball one!

now I didn't laugh at that part, but what struck me as funny was when the girl's sisters met the boyfriend for the first time.

The scene showed them all right after they met him, and they were all giggly, and they they cut to the real sister saying how happy her sister was........

"because he had a CAR and a JOB!"
(never mind the car was a rusted out rattle trap, and his job was smearing tomato sauce on pizza dough - oh yeah, her future was definitely set!)

Oh yeah, those are the two biggest qualities mom always told us to look for in a man!

one of my favorite unitentionally funny moments is the one with gregory webb. when the other office asks him "have you too ever been intimate" and he says no and then the look on his face when he sips his coffee and then he asks him again and he so easily gives up and says yes. it makes me crack up everytime i see it.

Wasn't there one where a man got along unusually well with his wife's best friend? Then they came to find out that both were adopted and she was actually his sister! He was shown saying, "It's a good thing I met my wife first, or things coulda been interesting."

That actor was a class-act. He was PERFECT for that part. I thought it was funny when he said "chili beans".

I'm glad they ended up finding the long-lost brother, Heath. I think Heath was a hottie!!
