The 'Wasted' rapper has been sentenced to six months in jail and three years of probation after pleading guilty of pushing a woman out of his Hummer back in January.
Gucci Mane is about to be sent back to jail. Regarding the issue, the Atlanta rapper's lawyer Ashutosh Joshi explained to MTV that his client "has been sentenced to six month in jail after pleading guilty to two counts of battery, two counts of reckless conduct and one count of disorderly conduct for pushing a woman out of his Hummer back on January 28."
State Court Judge Eleanor Ross ordered the MC, whose real name is Radric Davis, to accomplish 12 weeks of anger management classes, and to pay $5.091 in restitution to the woman for her medical bills and $3.000 in fine. The judge additionally sentenced him to three years of probation.
The "Gucci Time" rapper is at the moment locked up in Gorgia's DeKalb County Jail. His lawyer, meanwhile, hopes that the star will be allowed to serve out his entire sentence. "It's a case that we knew about, that we expected would come about at some point," so Joshi said.
According to the officers, back in January the 31-year-old rapper picked up a woman at an Atlanta suburban mall. He invited her for a breakfast before offering her $150 to check in to a hotel with him. When the woman refused his request, he pushed her out of his car while it was still moving. As a result, she was taken to hospital with "soreness and pain."
A report additionally stated that the woman was suffering a "redness on her left side/back area." Although the victim had never met the "Wasted" rapper before, she claimed that she was "familiar with his music" and "recognized an 'ice cream cone' tattoo on the suspect's face."
Sherry Boston, DeKalb Solicitor-General said in a statement on Tuesday, September 13, "I am pleased that justice was justice for the victim because this defendant's behavior showed a willful disregard for a woman's personal safety."
