Young Buck Indicted On Gun Charge; Facing 10 Years In Prison
Rapper Young Buck is facing serious jail time after being indicted today (March 7th), after being charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a .40 caliber pistol and ammunition.
Nashville's WSMV Channel 4 reports that prosecutors unsealed the indictment today, for an incident that occurred around August 3rd, just as Federal agents raided his Hendersonville home over a $300,000 tax dispute with the IRS.
Young Buck has pleaded not guilty to the gun possession charge and has been released on $100,000 bond.
The rapper has a 2004 felony conviction for stabbing a man named Jimmy Lee Johnson during a fight at the Vibe Awards, after Johnson punched superstar producer Dr. Dre.
As a result of this conviction and the pending gun possession charge, Young Buck is facing up to ten years in prison.
The rapper was also forced to surrender his passport.
