AceShowbiz - Rapper Juelz Santana is facing up to 20 years behind bars after pleading guilty to gun charges.
The There It Go (The Whistle Song) star, real name LaRon James, confessed to counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and carrying a weapon on an aircraft in a New Jersey court on Thursday, August 16.
The charges relate to an incident at Newark Liberty International Airport in March, when security officials found a loaded .38-caliber handgun and non-prescribed oxycodone pills in a carry-on bag containing Santana's identification.
He had initially pleaded not guilty, and was due to stand trial in early September, but the court date was delayed last week, ends August 10 to allow the MC more time to work out a plea deal with prosecutors.
However, it appears he has now had a change of heart and decided to confess to the crimes.
He will be sentenced on 12 December, reports The Associated Press.
