Report: Rapper B.G. to be sentenced next month on weapon and witness tampering charges
The formal sentencing of former Cash Money rapper B.G. who was convicted on weapons and witness-tampering charges will take place next month, as the former Hot Boy is set to be sentenced July 18, according to recent court filings.
In December of 2011, B.G. pleaded guilty to the charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and witness tampering.
B.G. was arrested with two other men in November 2009 for allegedly possessing three weapons, along with loaded magazines and two extended clips, while driving in eastern New Orleans.
At the time of the arrest, New Orleans police said two of the three guns had been reported stolen, while the car itself had been stolen from an Alamo rental car parking lot.
Last year, the case started in state court, and later moved to the federal system and has already resulted in federal indictments of B.G’s associates, Demounde Pollard and Jerod Fedison, whom both pleaded guilty, and paved the way for charges to be filed against the rapper.
According to sentencing recommendations made by probation officers, B.G. is facing eight to 10 years in prison.
