The Source |42 Dugg Set To Take Plea In Federal Gun Possession Case
According to an exclusive report from VladTV, Detroit rap wunderkind 42 Dugg has been in negotiations with federal prosecutors in Georgia and it is being reported that the 27-year-old star will be reaching a plea agreement for his gun possession case.
Court records confirm that Dugg’s lawyer is in negotiations with prosecutors, saying, “both parties are still hopeful that a resolution can be reached in the near future.” This means that Dugg, whose real name is Dion Hayes, will be pleading guilty to a federal offense.
A evidentiary hearing was scheduled for May 24, but was postponed amid the plea agreement negotiations.
The charges stem from Dugg going to a gun range in November 2019, which earned him a federal charge of possessing a firearm as a felon. That charge could cost the rapper 10 years in federal prison.
Dugg remains on pre-trial release, which allows him to travel for business purposes.
