B.G. has been sentenced to 14 years in prison after pleading guilty to guilty to two counts of a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice according to Nola.com.
The charges stem from a 2009 traffic stop where officers found three guns in the car BG was driving, two which were reported stolen. The car had also been stolen from an Alamo rental car parking lot.
The 31 year old B.G., whose real name is Christopher Dorsey, was arrested along with two other people, Demounde Pollard, 17, and Jerod Fedison, 28.
Dorsey pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm. But later, he obstructed justice by pushing Pollard to falsely claim ownership of the gun.
"The indictment also charges Dorsey with conspiring to obstruct justice with two other individuals, Jerod Fedison and Demounde Pollard. The indictment alleges that these three individuals conspired with each other to obstruct justice by getting Pollard to sign a false affidavit attesting that neither Fedison nor Dorsey possessed three firearms on November 3, 2009," said a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Prosecutors tried to use B.G.'s music videos as evidence against him as they sought a 25-year sentence.
"These videos are horrendous, especially in this city right now," Assistant U.S. Attorney Maurice Landrieu told the judge Wednesday. He talked of the city's "cycle of violence," and argued that Dorsey was "profiting off it."
U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan declined to use the videos as a basis for the lengthier sentence sought by Landrieu.
The article also noted that B.G. refused to testify or cooperate in helping convict his co-defendants.
