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.
The 34-year-old, whose real name is Radric Davis, pleaded guilty in May to a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon after reaching an agreement with prosecutors. The judge also sentenced him to serve three years of supervised release with extra limitations on his travel during that time and to pay a $5,000 fine.
Gucci Mane’s lawyers asked the judge to consider recommending that he get credit for about 11 months served in the DeKalb County jail since his arrest in September. The judge said he would consider that but that he felt it was a matter for the Bureau of Prisons.
The lawyers said Davis, Gucci Mane, has struggled with addiction to lean and asked that the judge recommend that he be sent to a facility with a recovery program.
A man who said he was a friend of the rapper’s called police early Sept (of last year) to say Davis was walking down the street behaving violently, according to a police report. When police arrived, Davis smelled strongly of marijuana, cursed at them, called them names and threatened to shoot them, according to the report.
Police arrested him on a disorderly conduct charge and found a clear baggie with what they believe was marijuana and a loaded handgun, the report says.
