Harris, aka Lul G — who, on March 2, pleaded no contest for killing Rashied Flowers — appeared in Department 9 for a morning sentencing hearing in the Justice Center in Fairfield.

Solano County Superior Court Judge Carlos R. Gutierrez, who received a pre-sentencing report on Harris, 24, handed down the sentence for voluntary manslaughter that was determined during the plea deal.

When he pleaded, Harris faced a first-degree murder charge on the verge of a jury trial. A previously convicted felon, he also admitted to the personal use of a firearm during the shooting, an enhancement.

But with the plea, Harris avoided the possibility of being found guilty of the murder charge and a sentence of 25 years to life, plus more time for the firearm charge and for a previous felony conviction.

Harris was represented by Deputy Public Defenders Max Fuentes and Denisse Tanasa, a co-counsel. Deputy District Attorney Bill Ainsworth, who confirmed some of the sentencing details, led the prosecution.

Solano County Sheriff’s Office records indicate Harris, a rising star in the Bay Area and national rap scene when accused of fatally shooting Flowers on July 24, 2019, was arrested on Sept. 21 in Clark County, Nevada.

Rolling Stone magazine and Pitchfork and XXL, among other websites, first reported the arrest.

Court records show that the Solano County District Attorney’s Office filed its complaint against Harris on Aug. 29.
