Rapper Gucci Mane gets three years and three months prison sentence on firearms charges

ATLANTA (Reuters) - The rapper known as Gucci Mane was sentenced on Wednesday by a federal court judge in Georgia to three years and three months in prison on firearms charges.

ā€œDavis has a long history of violence and of illegally possessing and using guns,ā€ Sally Yates, U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Georgia, said of Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis.

Mane, 34, will be required as part of a plea agreement to seek mental health treatment once he is released from prison.

According to prosecutors, Atlanta police in September 2013 found Mane pacing a street, waving a loaded handgun and making threats.

Two days earlier, police found Davis with a different gun, also making threats, prosecutors said.

In 2011, Mane was sentenced to six months in jail in Georgia after admitting to pushing a woman out of his car while it was in motion.
