Yung Joc Shows up Late to Court, Reprimanded by Judge
After skipping out on a court appearance and having his bond doubled, Atlanta rapper Yung Joc finally arrived at the Cuyahoga County courthouse late Wednesday afternoon (December 26) to answer to charges of felony weapons possession. According to Reuters, Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Michael Ryan reprimanded Joc for his lateness, but allowed him remain free on bond. The “It’s Going Down” MC was arrested at Hopkins International Airport in Ohio on Monday after security personnel found a semi-automatic weapon and armor piercing ammunition in his carry on luggage. Joc was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and released on $50,000 bond. After he failed to show up at his arraignment on Wednesday, prosecutors asked Judge Ryan to issue an arrest warrant. Joc’s attorney, Stanley Jackson Jr., explained that his client was delayed because of personal and family obligations. The judge on Wednesday set the rapper’s next court date for January 25. According to the Cuyahoga County prosecutor’s office, the charge carries a potential sentence of 18 months in prison.
