Young Buck Given Three Year Prison Sentence
Posted on July 15, 2012 by Jamie Slaughter
Young Buck, on Friday July 13th, was sentenced to three years in prison, after being convicted of weapon charges. Upon leaving court, the ex G-Unit rapper spoke to NBC affiliate WSMV-TV.
"With the judge not considering my history to subtract some time, I'm just thankful for what time I do have" Young Buck told WSMV-TV.
Young Buck, real name David Darnell Brown, has had many run-ins with the law authorities over the past few years beginning with a raid of his home in August 2010. The police grabbed jewelry, plaques and was convicted of gun possession. Buck then filed for bankruptcy, before the IRS auctioned off his property. In March, Buck's SUV was struck by 11 bullets, one striking his girlfriend in the shoulder. Buck escaped the incident unharmed.
"I've had some rough times," he added to WSMV. "I've been fighting the bankruptcy situation, and there were some court situations."
Buck will ve forced to serve 18 months, as opposed to the full three years. Buck views this decision as a good break, and one which he is looking to move on from once his prison stint is complete.
"My pride is through the roof," Buck said. "My head is held high, and I'm just looking to get all this behind me."
