Update: “(White) Rapper Show” MC Dodges The Bullet, Sentencing For Gun Charge Postponed
Persia, the aggressive Queens-bred MC from VH1’s “(White) Rapper Show,” had her sentencing date for weapons possession charges delayed.
As XXL reported yesterday (12/12), the former reality show contestant was supposed to be sentenced this morning, but the court date has since been moved up to a later date.
“By the mercy of God and through all of your support, my court date has been postponed for reasons unknown to me,” she wrote on her MySpace blog. “I want to thank everyone for everything. Your letters, your prayers and your support. We now have a little more time to get people with some influence involved in the case and argue the sentence.”
Even though she’s off the hook for now, Persia continued to plead with fans to make calls and write letters to the District Attorney in her defense.
Persia was picked up on the firearms charge two years ago in New York, which has a mandatory three and a half year sentence. She claims that her mother bought her the weapon for protection after getting out of an abusive relationship.
For all those interested in getting involved you can call D. Holley Carnright, District Attorney of Ulster County at 845-340-3280 or fax letters to 845-340-3185. – Jesse Gissen
