Newark, NJ – A New Jersey judge officially handed down Juelz Santana’s sentence in his airport gun case on Wednesday morning (December 20).
According to NorthJersey.com, the Love & Hip Hop: New York star will spend 27 months behind bars for attempting to bring a loaded weapon through Newark Liberty International Airport in March. Santana pleaded guilty to weapon possession by a convicted felon and carrying a weapon on an aircraft in August. He ultimately agreed to a plea deal.
While out on bail, Santana was closely watched by authorities. Although he had a set curfew, he was allowed to travel for work.
In a recent episode of Love & Hip Hop, the Dipset rapper revealed he’d be going away for 27-37 months, which was evidently extremely accurate.
The date he begins his sentence hasn’t been determined.
Santana was having a productive year prior to this. Last month, not only did Dipset release its first album in 14 years, Diplomatic Ties, but Santana also got engaged to his longtime girlfriend Kimbella Vanderhee.
