Detroit rapper 42 Dugg was accused of possessing an illegal firearm at a gun range back in 2019. He was arrested with charges relating to the incident on March 10 2020. The rapper was reportedly facing upwards of 10 years in prison.
According to the criminal complaint surveillance video showed 42 Dugg, who’s real name is Dion Marquise Hayes, possessing, loading and firing a 9 mm Glock pistol. Thankfully, Dugg escaped the 10 year sentence, which could potentially derail his music career.
Detroit News stated that the rapper managed to walk away with probation. The young rapper reportedly took a plea deal and will have to pay a $90K fine. He will be on probation for the next three years.
“Dion admits his wrongdoing and acknowledges that he is not perfect. He is still a young man with many lessons to be learned in life.” the rapper’s lawyers reportedly stated.
“Dion dreams of using his success to impact the kids of Detroit — those who, like him, were incarcerated or had incarcerated parents,” they continued. “Dion muses about buying a local skating rink and creating a gathering spot for young people, or of holding music writing classes at juvenile detention centers so that young people who are on the wrong path can find something positive to put their energy into.”
The plea sounds great, we hope Dugg lives up to it. Previously Dugg offered to pay bills for NYPD police officer who for suspended without pay for riding a dirt bike. Dugg took to the stage yesterday (November 12) alongside Gunna, Mooski, and Lil Baby in North Carolina. We wish 42 Dugg a promising career ahead.
