Judge Recommends Jail Time For Gucci Mane
AllHipHop.comreported that Gucci Mane was sentenced to a year in prison for violating the terms of his probation during an altercation last November.
Looks like Gucci could be sentenced to over a year in the pen for the violation. Gucci's attorney asked the court, with no success, to have the rapper placed on home confinement, but a Fulton County Superior Court judge agreed that a prison term for Gucci was inevitable. If Gucci Mane is found guilty, he could spend as many as 17 months behind bars, the hearing is scheduled for January 24th.
The story is, back in November of 2010, Gucci Mane was arrested after police reported a white Hummer driving erratic on Northside Drive in Atlanta, officers responded to the scene, they found Gucci Mane arguing with another dude. Gucci allegedly struck the guy as police attempted to diffuse the situation, resulting in officers pepper spraying the Gucci, arrested and charged him with damage obstruction, damage to government property, driving without a license, reckless driving, running a red light, failure to maintain a lane, and driving on the wrong side of the road. At the time, prosecutors dropped the charges and released Gucci for "want of prosecution." That arrest came just six months after Gucci Mane was released from prison, after serving six months for a previous probation violation.
