    No, that's really your job. I will assist a bit. Which word is incorrect in your sentence?

    Since "gonna be" means "going to be", I will rephrase the sentence as"You are going to be going to prison". But it doesn't look grammatical. Please explain what is the use of "gonna be" here?

    It is grammatical, but the repeat of "going" is annoying. How about "You will be going to prison?"
