Yeo it’s true. Big Soulja will have to serve 200 days in jail and complete 265 days of community service for previously violating his probation.
The rapper appeared in court Tuesday for his sentencing. The initial arrest for his probation violation arrest happen on April 11th, when a judge ruled that he failed to complete his court-ordered community service. Even worse than that, Soulja reportedly then attempted to falsify evidence to try and prove that he had completed the community service hours in question. Uh oh! The judge then immediately ordered that he be taken into custody and he’s been held without bail in an LA County jail ever since.
This of course all started when cops showed up to the the rapper’s Agoura Hills home after his ex-girlfriend claimed she was tied up and held captive in his garage. Upon searching the home, authorities found ammunition during the search, this is where his problems started. Possessing ammo is an immediate violation of his probation due to a weapons back in 2014.
Drako’s lawyer told the judge that the 20 days he’s spent awaiting trial has led him to have an “awakening” which may have slightly helped his case. The judge said he was initially going wanting to sentence him to 2 years in a CA state prison, so compared to that he got off a little easier. 40 days were credited from the sentence due to time already served, and his sentence is due to start right away.
