American rapper, Juelz Santana, will spend up to 27 months in prison after he pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and carrying a weapon on an aircraft.
TMZ reports that Santana whose real name is LaRon Louis James also pleaded guilty to “possession of a controlled dangerous substance,” and will reportedly “be under supervised release” for one year after completing his sentence.
The ‘Love and Hiphop’ star was arrested in March after security staff at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport discovered a loaded 38-caliber handgun and nonprescription Oxycodone pills in a carry-on bag containing his identification.
He reportedly abandoned his luggage and left the area, but turned himself in three days later.
Back in 2011, Santana was also arrested after police found 17 bags of marijuana, two loaded handguns, and drug paraphernalia while raiding his studio in New Jersey. He ended up pleading guilty to fourth-degree marijuana distribution.
During the episode of “Love and Hip Hop,” which aired Monday night (Dec. 10), Santana explained to his fiancée, Kimbella, that he decided to take a plea deal, which could land him a sentence of 27-37 months. During their aired conversation, the rapper revealed that if he chose to go to trial and was found guilty, he could have received 47 to 57 months behind bars.
