Young Buck has been sentenced to seven months in prison. After being released from jail on August 1, the former G-Unit member was sentenced to the term on Wednesday, August 10 for violating the conditions of his supervised release and probation.
In 2013, the rapper was granted a three-year supervised release term after serving time for illegal gun possession. Buck violated the conditions in 2015, when he provided a fake urine sample for a drug test. He was sentenced to 18 months’ probation, a $7,500 fine and 100 hours of community service.
Last month, the rapper was arrested after allegedly kicking down his then-girlfriend’s door and threatening to burn her house down, itself a violation of the 2013 charges. After serving jail time for that incident, he was released at the beginning of August on the condition that he would not have any contact with the woman, however, he reportedly attempted to get in touch with her more than 100 times. As a result, the 35-year-old rapper has been sentenced to seven months in prison.
Read an excerpt from the U.S. Attorney’s office in reference to Buck’s sentencing can be found below:
On July 20, 2016, another of Brown’s ex-girlfriends obtained an Ex Parte Order of Protection in state court and arrest warrants were issued against Brown based on an incident in which Brown wanted to get certain property out of that woman’s house and was told that the property was not there. He then kicked in the door of the residence and threatened that woman. Brown was arrested for violating his supervision, and was detained pending a detention hearing. After that hearing, the federal magistrate determined Brown could be released pending the final hearing on this incident and the previous March 2016 incident, but ordered Brown not to have any direct or indirect contact with this victim. Brown was released under those conditions on August 1, 2016.
After being released on those conditions, Brown violated the conditions of his release by contacting and attempting to contact that woman over 100 times in violation of the Magistrate’s release order.
