Rapper & Friend of Justin Bieber Sentenced to Probation
No matter what walk of life a person might come from, criminal charges can be devastating. These charges, even the so-called minor ones, can have terrible repercussions that last a lifetime. This is why a strong legal defense is so important. The right attorney can be the difference between conviction or acquittal. In fact, the right attorney can often even settle things discreetly out of court, depending upon the charges.
An aspiring rapper pleaded no contest to felony possession of ecstasy, after his arrest at Justin Bieber’s Los Angeles mansion. He was sentenced to probation and community service.
In addition, the 20-year-old rapper was ordered to attend a drug treatment program and fined $1,000 for breaking one of the jail’s telephones while he was in custody, according to a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
The rapper received three years of probation, but the felony may be reduced to a misdemeanor if he completes his sentencing without further incident.
Police found him with drugs, according to deputies, during their search of Bieber’s mansion for evidence relating to accusations of vandalism, in which the pop star was accused of throwing eggs. Police have not yet decided whether to charge Bieber, as well.
Three or four rocks of ecstasy were found on the rapper, along with a number of Xanax and oxycodone pills, in his bedroom at Bieber’s house, according to the probation report. The rapper told officers he did not take the drugs himself, but gave it to girls, because they “love it”.
