Judge Refuses to Toss Ja Rule’s Gun Possession Case
Ja Rule and his team of lawyers will have to go back to the drawing board after losing his battle to have a 2007 gun possession case dropped. This morning (Jan. 20), New York Supreme Court Justice Richard Carruthers denied a motion stating that the weapon seized from his vehicle after a concert at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre was unlawfully discovered because NYPD searched his Maybach without reason. Unfortunately, the judge didn’t buy it.
However, according to the New York Post, the rapper admitting to having “a little weed” in his pocket won’t be used against him. Rule is facing up to three and half years prison if convicted. He’s scheduled to appear in court on March 3.
