Instagram Influencer Rossi Lorathio Adams II Was Sentenced to 14 Years in Prison

By

Social media influencer Rossi Lorathio Adams II was sentenced to 14 years in jail after conspiring to steal a website, which resulted in a violent home invasion. The 27-year-old founded the popular account "State Snaps" while he was enrolled at Iowa State University in 2015.

The company operated on multiple social media platforms (Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram), which "mostly contained images and videos of young adults engaged in crude behavior, drunkenness, and nudity (via U.S. Attorney's Office)." According to The Washington Post, his Instagram had almost 1.5 million followers. Adams' followers regularly used the slogan "Do It For State!" 

The Iowa native attempted to buy the registered domain "doitforstate.com" from 2015-2017, but GoDaddy.com would not sell it.
