Los Angeles, CA
Rapper Soulja Boy was taken into custody at a court appearance earlier this month and charged with violating the terms of his probation after cops raided his home and found ammunition. Cops originally went to his home investigating a woman’s claims that Soulja Boy had her tied up in his home. Possessing ammunition or a weapon is a violation of Soulja’s Boy’s 2014 probation from a gun charge. Soulja Boy remained in custody as he awaited his court date to find out his fate. On Tuesday morning the judge gave his decision. After claiming to have considered slapping Soulja with as much as a 2-year stay at the County Jail, the judge settled on a 240-day jail sentence, according to TMZ (@tmz)
Soulja Boy was also sentenced to serve 265 days of community service upon release. The judge gave Soulja 40 days credit for time already served. So he’s probably looking at a September – November release date. I’m not sure if he should be happy, sad, or angry right now. All things considered, his sentence could’ve been a lot worse. At least he’ll be out before the year is over.
