Gucci Mane Could Face Up To 20 Years In Jail For Felony Gun Possession


After his very public Twitter meltdown and dismissal from Atlantic Records, 2013 is not ending in Radric Davis’ favor. In September, Gucci Mane showed a gun and threatened police, which landed him in the slammer for disorderly conduct, marijuana possession and carrying a handgun. Then two days later, he was found with a second firearm.

“On September 12, 2013, Davis, who was a felon at the time, was found in possession of a firearm,” a news release from the federal prosecutor said. “Then, just two days later, on September 14th, he again possessed a firearm different from the earlier gun. On both occasions, Davis displayed the loaded firearm, acted erratically, and made threats to individuals, including police and his attorney.”

Today, Gucci Mane was charged in federal court with two counts of possessing a firearm as a felon, and could face up to 20 years in prison (each charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000).
