This week North Carolina rapper Petey Pablo suffered a huge legal blow after battling his one year-long gun charge he was facing in his home state of North Carolina. Last year Petey Pablo (former Timberland protege ) was allegedly caught smuggling a stolen 9mm pistol at Raleigh-Durham International Airport when he was catching a flight to Los Angeles. It was reported that Pablo was going to be facing a 10 year prison sentence if found guilty.
On Tuesday morning the rappers fate was announced inside the US District Court in the city of New Bern after a guilty plea from Pablo. The artist has been sentenced to serve 35 month in a North Carolina prison. Peaty Pablo was arrested when the gun was detected by the X-ray machine while he was going through the security check point.
Petey Pablo had this to say in an interview with Hip Hop DX about his legal woes œI mean, I always feel confident. In the end, the truth always comes to the light. And, regardless of what the outcome is, I’m a man. And whatever has been written in my book of life is written in my book of life. So whatever the outcome of any situation is, I have no choice but to handle it.
The south rapper had begin working with hot new rapper J. Cole. Hopefully when he gets out he will continue to work with the artist, and maybe have a comeback career. What are your thoughts on Petey sentence?
