Just Nineteen days after being arrested for violating his probation related to 2016 firearms charges, Soulja Boy has just been handed a significant jail sentence.
According to a report TMZ published on Tuesday (April 30), a judge sentenced the 28-year-old rapper to 240 days in jail as well as 265 days’worth of community service. He’s reportedly been granted 40 days of time served behind bars.
The legal punishment Soulja currently faces comes after a judge determined that he violated his probation terms related to a 2016 case where police found a weapon in his home. After authorities found ammunition in Soulja’s California home this past February, Soulja was arrested for probation violation on March 15. He was released the same day.
After an April 19 hearing for the case, a judge determined that Soulja had falsified evidence meant to indicate that he’d completed his required community service for his 2016 case. He’s been held in jail without bond since.
