Juelz Santana Sentenced To 27 Months In Prison
Popular rapper Juelz Santana (real name: LaRon Louis James) has been sentenced to 27 months in prison after he reportedly tried to get a loaded gun onto a plane at a New York-area airport.
Santana was sentenced on Wednesday in Newark, New Jersey, to 27 months in prison after pleading guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and carrying a weapon on an aircraft.
He was arrested in March after security at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport found a loaded .38-caliber handgun and nonprescription oxycodone pills in his carry-on.
Santana left the area and the bags behind, but he turned himself in three days later.
The 36-year-old will not immediately go to prison after having reached an agreement to perform on Long Island.
According to TMZ, James also pleaded guilty to “possession of a controlled dangerous substance.”
James will reportedly “be under supervised release” for one year following his prison sentence.
Bear in mind that in 2011, the Dipset rapper was arrested after police found two loaded handguns, 17 bags of marijuana and drug paraphernalia while raiding his New Jersey studio.
Santana pleaded guilty to fourth-degree marijuana distribution.
