Gucci Mane Faces up to 20 Years in Prison
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Gucci Mane’s legal woes just keep on coming apparently. Although the rapper has been in jail since September for probation violation, he had yet another court appearance earlier today over gun charges. And if he gets convicted, he will be in jail for a very long time.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Gucci (whose real name is Radric Davis) is facing federal gun possession charges, and he’s been arraigned before a federal judge on two counts of gun possession by a convicted felon.
The 33-year-old Georgia rapper has been accused of displaying two different loaded handguns and acting “erratically” on two different incidents back in September.
If Gucci is convicted on all counts, he will face up to 20 years in federal prison. His money problems will also worsen, as he will also have to pay up to $500,000 in fines if he is convicted.
The rapper’s next federal court hearing is in January.
