Juelz Santana Finalizes Plea Deal In Airport Gun Case

Posted by

New York, NY – Juelz Santana is going away for at least two years and some change. During Monday night’s (December 10) episode of Love & Hip Hop: New York, Santana headed to court for sentencing in his weapons case.

Before Santana goes in, he explains to his fiancée and co-star Kimbella that the plea deal would land him behind bars for 27-37 months, but if he headed to trial and was found guilty, he could receive 47 to 57 months.

“This whole situation has been an overwhelming nightmare,” he says. “And even now, it’s coming down to the wire, and I still don’t know what decision I’m going to make.”

After Santana emerges from court, he explains why he decided to take the deal, which he’d been negotiating since August.

“So I decided to take the plea,” he says. “I felt like it was the least selfish choice for my family. I still don’t have no full closure because at the end of the day, I know the final decision is on the judge. He could give me more time than I agreed on. Just when I felt like I was going to be getting some closure, the problems just begun.”

Back in March, the Dipset rapper fled the authorities after Newark Liberty International Airport security found a loaded .38-caliber handgun and unprescribed Oxycodone pills in a carry-on bag with his identification tag inside the luggage.

Santana eventually turned himself in and was charged with carrying a firearm on an aircraft and possessing a weapon as a previously convicted felon.

Elsewhere in the episode, Kimbella confronts Santana about his drug addiction and opens up about how his trial his affecting their family.
