Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane’s stay in federal prison has just been extended after reportedly pleading guilty to aggravated assault for attacking a fan in Georgia last year.
According to reports, Mane pleaded guilty and received a three-year sentence Monday (September 15) for his March 16, 2013 Atlanta nightclub attack.
Authorities have said the man approached Davis and was looking to have his picture taken with him. Prosecutors say the fan was an Army staff sergeant in town on a brief military leave. Authorities have said the man suffered a deep cut which required 10 stitches. Spokeswoman Yvette Jones says Davis’s three-year sentence will be served concurrently with a 39-month federal firearms sentence that he was given in late August. (Fox News)
Gucci initially received some good news right here
Recent reports revealed Gucci had had a full year carved off a prior sentence.
According to court docs … after initially ruling against Gucci, an Atlanta judge has finally given the rapper the year’s worth of credit for time served he’s earned since his arrest for gun possession last September. His 39-month sentence was originally scheduled to begin August 2014 when the judge made his ruling … but now that sentence will begin at the time of his arrest. He’s scheduled to be released in December 2016. (TMZ)
The incarcerated rapper received his hefty sentence on a gun conviction last month.
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.
