Gucci Mane’s Reduced Sentence Denied, Remains in Jail
Contrary to recent reports, Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane will not be receiving an early release from prison.
The 'Wasted' rapper, currently serving a six month bid for pushing a woman out of a moving vehicle, saw his attempt to reduce his sentence denied on Friday (Oct. 28), by Dekalb State Court Judge Eleanor Ross.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the 31-year-old rapper, who pleaded guilty to two counts of battery, two counts of reckless conduct and one count of disorderly conduct back in September, offered to hold a benefit concert for he Dekalb County Battered Women's Shelter, in hopes of receiving a reduced sentence. However, the judge was not impressed by Gucci's attempt, stating, "I don't think it would be appropriate to let him out just because he's a rapper."
The rhymer, who was identified by Graham thanks to his ice cream cone face tattoo, will be required to complete 12 weeks of anger management courses and pay $5,091 to cover her medical bills, along with a $3,000 fine, upon his release in early 2012.
