As per the CCTV footage recovered by the authorities, Stokes was seen approaching a vehicle before using his gun and started shooting in the car where the victim was at the time. He was charged with second-degree murder and was given a 25-year prison sentence due to this. The actor's motive behind the crime remains to be known. Vanity Fair reports Queens District Attorney said about how the crime unfolded.

The Power actor Stokes did this crime in broad daylight, making this horrific crime even scarier than it already is. Gun violence has been a huge issue in the United States for a very long time, and this event only created more discussion between pro-guns and anti-guns, and as usual, they failed to find common ground this time as well.

Does Isaiah Stokes Have A Wife?

Isaiah doesn't have a wife, nor is he seeing anyone right now. He is in prison, so it would be hard for him to see his partner anyway. But, even before going to prison, the Law and Order actor Stokes was not seeing anyone.

Stokes used to live a single life, giving his entire attention to his music and acting career. It's a shame he ruined his promising career by taking a life, but he has no one to blame but himself for his downfall.

Who Is 'Law and Order' Actor Isaiah Stokes?

Isaiah Stokes is a popular musician and actor known for his guest appearance in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and an episode of Power as Mozzy.

Stokes has the same height as actor Peter Stebbings at 6 Feet 2 Inches (188 cm). His body weight is 249 lbs (90 kg). He grew up in Rochdale Village and dreamed about being a musician, thanks to his family, who made him fall in love with music at a young age. He grew up involved in music, movies, and tv shows.

Isaiah Stokes's Net Worth

Isaiah Stokes has a net worth of $1 Million, similar to that of Luke Cage actor Carmus Johnson. The once-popular actor is in jail for murder, directly impacting his wealth and reputation. The acting was his biggest source of revenue, and all of the work he did or was about to do had been canceled. He is on the blocklist of many major studios and will probably never get any role once he comes out of jail.

Law and Order actor Stokes not only lost his role in movies and shows because of his crime. He also lost many brand deals because of it, as no company would like to be associated with the man who took someone's life. All of this led to directly hurting his net worth.

Career As An Actor

Isaiah has achieved a lot of success as an actor. He may not have achieved much on the big screen, but he has easily achieved a lot on television. Before being charged with second-degree murder, he was a fan favorite of many tv viewers and was popular for his short role in Law and Order.

Stokes never landed the role of a big actor; with few shows, he got only one or two episodes. Despite getting such limited opportunities, he was showing the world what he was capable of with his screen presence. We all know his career is dead now, but one can't deny he had everything to make it as a top actor.

Stokes filmography is filled with television shows. Besides a small appearance in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and Power, he is also known for Blue Bloods, The Mysteries of Laura, The Americans, and Louie.

Stokes's Family Was Involved In Music

Like Stokes, some of his family members were involved in music. His grandfather was involved in Blues, whereas his father was a Jazz musician. Now, we know where Stokes developed his love for music. His parent's name remains to be identified.

Even though hip-hop and Jazz music are associated with the afro-Americans, the music of these two genres is completely different. And it remains to be known what made Isaiah choose the hip-hop career and not what his father and grandfather used to play.

Career As A Musician 

Stokes made his music career in hip-hop, which is evident in his popularity during college. His FONTY organization in the college made him popular among his music lovers. His song I Love you Isaiah was also a huge hit among his college friends. The success of this song was followed by Pleasure's Paradise, which was also a huge hit.

Many people might know Isaiah for his acting, especially in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, but he is also a brilliant rapper. His IMDb page has listed out some of his memorable moments before going to prison. He has performed with Donald Byrd on his tour in the past. Looking at all of this, it's a shame that he won't be remembered for any of it but the fact that he took the life of someone.

Education Background

I Love you Isaiah singer Stokes has majored in Accounting and Business Management at Delaware State University. You probably thought he learned in a theatre or music school, but his formal education is much different than his career path of acting and making music. 

Isaiah was also focused on other activities during his time at DSU. His IMDb page says that he contributed to hip-hop by starting an organization called From Our Neighborhood To Yours (FONTY). The organization he eventually turned into a record label. 

FONTY aimed at preserving hip-hop and was a huge hit among other college students. The reason behind Isaiah not choosing to pursue a career in Finance remains unknown.
