Gucci Mane Facing 20-Year Sentence For Weapons Possession

Rapper was indicted on two counts of possession of a firearm in federal court.

Gucci Mane was arraigned in federal court on Tuesday (December 3) for two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon after police in Atlanta found weapons on him during two different encounters, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting. Cops nabbed Gucci with a loaded handgun on September 12 and again two days later during, where eyewitnesses reported that he was behaving erratically.

If convicted on both charges, he potentially faces a 20-year prison sentence in addition to a $500, 000 fine. Gucci's lawyer, Drew Findling, has revealed that the next court date is scheduled for early January. Until then, he remains in the DeKalb County Jail, where he's been held since his September 14 arrest.

The Brick Squad rapper is certainly not having the best year. Before his September arrest, the rapper born Radric Davis admitted to a lean addiction and apologized to those he hurt in a wide-ranging Twitter spree.

In 2011, he served three months for shoving a woman out of a moving car and was arrested for assaulting a soldier at an Atlanta nightclub this spring with his bond set at $75,000.

"I just wanna man up right now & take this time to apologize to my family, friends, the industry & most of all my fans. I'm SORRY" he tweeted in September about his legal troubles and addiction. I'm addicted to lean & that sh-- ain't no joke. I can barely remember all the things I've done & said. However there's no excuse."
