BG Pleads Guilty In Gun Case, Jail Time Certain In March
Former Cash Money records artist BG is facing up to 40 years in prison, after pleading guilty to gun and witness tampering charges yesterday (December 7).
BG, born Christopher Dorsey, pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm and witness tampering charges, although prosecutors refused to offer the rapper any type of plea deal.
The rapper acknowledged that he was the owner of several guns that were confiscated from a stolen vehicle, during a traffic stop in November of 2009.
During the incident, police recovered found three loaded handguns and two extended magazine clips.
In addition to BG, 27-year-old Jerod Fedison and 17-year-old Demounde Pollard were charged in the case.
Police claim that BG and Fedison, who are both convicted felons, pressured Pollard into taking the gun charges, due to his clean criminal record.
In May, BG was arrested for his role in persuading Pollard to claim ownership of the guns, hence the witness tampering charge.
Fedison recently pleaded guilty to gun and witness tampering charges and was sentenced to a 20-year term.
Pollard reportedly cooperated with authorities and received an 30 month sentence.
BG is facing certain jail time and could receive up to 40 years in prison, when he is sentenced on March 14.
