(NEWARK, N.J.) – Rapper Juelz Santana has been sentenced to more than two years in prison to try to get a loaded gun on a plane at an airport in the New York area.
Santana, whose real name is LaRon James, was convicted on Wednesday in Newark, New Jersey, for 27 months in prison after being guilty of possession of a firearm of a sentenced felon and carrying a weapon on an airplane .
He was arrested in March after security at New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport found a loaded .38-caliber gun and nonprescription oxycodone pill in its carry-on.
Santana left the area and the bags behind, but turned around three days later.
The 36-year-old will not immediately go to jail after entering into an agreement to perform on Long Island.
