American rapper, Soulja Boy has been sentenced to 240 days in jail for violating probation on a firearms charge.
A Van Nuys Superior Court judge in California on Tuesday sentenced the rapper, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, to 240 days in jail and 265 days of community service for violating the terms of his probation on a 2014 firearms charge. He was also credited with 40 days of time served.
According to the judge, he was considering a term of two-years in jail for his latest arrest, which included possession of ammunition and submission of bogus compliance records for community service.
‘It really shows a lack of commitment to being on probation and a lack of respect to the court and the probation department,’ the judge told the Chicago native in a video posted by TMZ.
Authorities claim Soulja forged paperwork to show community service that he didn’t actually fulfill.
Police also found ammunition at his home, in response to a call from a woman who claimed he had held her hostage in his garage in February, and the terms of his probation from his 2014 firearms arrest strictly forbid him from possessing any guns or ammunition.
