Rapper Juelz Santana has been sentenced to 27 months in prison after pleading guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and carrying a weapon on an aircraft.
The 36-year-old plead guilty and was sentenced on Wednesday in Newark, New Jersey after he was arrested in March.
Santana, real name LaRon James, was stopped at security at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport where guards searched his carry-on luggage and found a loaded .38-caliber handgun and nonprescription oxycodone pills.
