Gucci Mane has been locked up for a while now for a gun conviction, and the Atlanta rapper has just received very bad news as reports claim he was in court today (August 20) when the judge sentenced him to serve years behind bars.
According to reports, Gucci was sentenced to serve over three years in prison while he appeared in court Wednesday (August 20).
Rapper Gucci Mane was sentenced Wednesday to serve three years and three months in prison after pleading guilty to a federal firearms charge several months ago. U.S. District Judge Steve C. Jones told Davis he’s heard from his nieces and nephews that the rapper is a talented musician with a potentially bright future and warned him not to squander that. “You’re still a young man, and you can still do a lot if you follow and abide by the law,” Jones said.

Back in May reports claimed Gucci could face up to two years behind bars.
Gucci pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in jail, but under Gucci’s plea deal, he’s only expected to face 39 months … minus 10 months credit for time served. Gucci will officially be sentenced in July. (TMZ)
