Yesterday a judge sentenced 34 year old rapper Radric Davis aka Gucci Mane to serve three years in prison after pleading guilty to federal firearm charges back in May.

Gucci has been locked up since last September. He will receive time served and will finish the remaining 28 months before being released on three years supervised probation with limitations on his travel.

Federal prosecutor Kim Dammers said she believes the sentence outlined in the plea agreement is appropriate given the seriousness of the offense and Davis’ lengthy and violent criminal history, which includes convictions for battery and aggravated assault. U.S. District Judge Steve C. Jones told Davis he’s heard from his nieces and nephews that the rapper is a talented musician with a potentially bright future and warned him not to squander that.

“You’re still a young man, and you can still do a lot if you follow and abide by the law,” Jones said.

Davis’ lawyers asked the judge to consider recommending that he get credit for about 11 months served in the DeKalb County jail since his arrest in September. The judge said he would consider that but that he felt it was a matter for the Bureau of Prisons.

The lawyers said Davis has struggled to with addiction to a mixture of cough syrup and soda known as lean and asked that the judge recommend that he be sent to a facility with a recovery program. Lawyer Drew Findling said Davis would prefer to serve his time on the West Coast to be away from distractions closer to home.
