Ja Rule Sentenced To 2 Years In Prison For Gun Charges

14 Dec

Ja Rule reached a plea deal with prosecutors in a Manhattan courtroom on Monday that will see the rapper serve two years in prison. The charges arose from a gun bust in July 2007, when both Ja and Lil  Wayne were arrested separately following a concert performance in New York.

The Murder Inc. star pled guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon, a class D felony in the second degree. After reaching the deal Ja tweeted:

“Minor setback for a major comeback”

Ja Rule is expected to be sentenced in February, following a court appearance that same month to report his progress to the judge.

The case originated more than three years ago, when Ja Rule joined Lil Wayne at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre to perform with the Cash Money superstar, who was headlining his first New York City concert.
