Petey Pablo Pleads Guilty to Gun Charge
According to the Associated Press, the North Carolina rapper pleaded guilty on Wednesday (March 16), to possession of a stolen firearm.
Pablo was arrested on September 11, 2010 at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport when security discovered a concealed weapon in his carry-on luggage.
In November, the “Raise Up” rapper’s reps told TMZ that their client was unaware that he was carrying the gun in his luggage, and that it was not even his. He was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a stolen firearm and attempting to take the gun onto an airplane.
The AP is reporting that Petey Pablo is facing up to 10 years behind bars and will be sentenced in June. He previously spent six years locked up for armed robbery in the 1990s. —Adam Fleischer
