Juelz Santana Sentenced To Two Years Probation

Juelz Santana was sentenced to two years probation on Friday (January 25), stemming from an incident where he allegedly threatened a neighbor with death after they tried to intervene when the Harlem rapper was reportedly assaulting his girlfriend.

According to the Cliff View Pilot, the matter began when the unnamed neighbor witnessed Julez hitting his girlfriend outside of his Englewood, New Jersey home. The neighbor called the police, and says since then he has received serious threats of bodily harm from the rapper. The neighbor insists the incident has caused “problems in my marriage [and] my personal life. … I had to move out of fear. I pay more rent now. I’ve been having problems with my wife.”

Juelz escaped a possible prison sentence by entering a plea deal to lesser charges. Santana pleaded guilty to a single third-degree count of threatening the neighbor. According to Superior Court Judge James Guida, “Probation would be a positive factor for the defendant, and incarceration an excessive hardship.”

Juelz’s hiatus ending mixtape God Will’n put him back on the music scene, but there are still other legal matters he must tend to. Santana still faces charges from a 2011 raid on his “Santana’s World” studio where authorities uncovered guns, ammunition and marijuana.
