According to CNN, rapper Gucci Mane will serve 39 months in prison after pleading guilty Tuesday to a federal firearms charge.
He was facing up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000 on two counts of possessing a firearm as a felon after a pair of September incidents in which he reportedly showed a gun and threatened police.
Both came on the same week that Atlantic Records reportedly dropped his recording contract. Federal Prosecutor‘s say,
“On September 12, 2013, Davis, who was a felon at the time, was found in possession of a firearm. Then, just two days later, on September 14th, he again possessed a firearm different from the earlier gun. On both occasions, Davis displayed the loaded firearm, acted erratically, and made threats to individuals, including police and his attorney.”
Aladino Ortiz with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said,
“The criminal history of the defendant, Radric Davis shows a complete and utter disregard for the lives of others as well as for their personal pursuits.”
Well, we guess it’s better than the 20 years he was facing but wow! That’s a very long time to be away. Maybe just maybe Gucci will be able to get himself together now. We know he’s no stranger to jail but more than 3 years is going to be a lot on the rapper who has become accustomed to the finer things in life.
Hang in there Gucci.
Sentencing is scheduled for July 28.
