Gilmore lost both his parents by the age of 13, which contributed to bad decision-making and run-ins with the law. As a teenager, Frank was arrested several timesand was enlisted at multiple juvenile detention institutions, group homes, and residential programs.  By the age of nineteen, Frank was sentenced to one hundred and twenty months in state prison.
