Rapper Juelz Santana has officially began his prison sentence after being charged for gun and illegal drugs following an incident that took place at the Newark Liberty Airport last March.
In March 2018 Santana was arrested after the airport's TSA staff found a loaded gun along with oxycodone pills in his carry-on luggage. To make matters worse the rapper fled from the airport via taxi but turned himself in a couple of days later.
The gun and drug charges could have gotten the rapper a maximum of 20 years in prison, lucky for him he was able to negotiate a plea deal. Santana ended up pleading guilty to unlawful possession of a weapon as well as possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
Prior to serving his sentence the rapper was placed under house arrest at his mother's house in Northern New Jersey.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons' website, the rapper has been placed in the Petersburg Medium Federal Corrections Institution in Hopewell, Va.
