Young Buck Sentenced To 18 Months In Prison On Weapons Charges

Young Buck Sentenced To 18 Months In Prison On Weapons Charges

As we previously reported, Young Buck is headed to prison for being a convicted felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, which were found when the IRS raided his Nashville mansion in 2010. And today, he was officially sentenced to three years (it was originally up to ten years), though he will serve his two counts concurrently, so he will really only spend 18 months locked up. Young Buck commented on the sentencing, saying, "With the judge not considering my history to subtract some time, I'm just thankful for what time I do have."

Buck has also been dealing with a bankruptcy case related to a contract dispute with his former label G-Unit Records, which he briefly addressed adding, "I've had some rough times. I've been fighting the bankruptcy situation, and there were some court situations." But he managed to stay positive, saying, "My pride is through the roof. My head is held high, and I'm just looking to get all this behind me." Buck was told by the judge he must remain off drugs and will be subject to court-ordered supervision for three years after he is released.
