Juelz Santana appears to be going away for at least two years due to the judge’s decision. During an episode of Love & Hip Hop: New York on Monday, Santana was sent to court and was sentenced in his weapons case.
Santana then explained to his fiancee, Kimbella, that the plea deal would put him behind bars for around two years. Now, if he heads to trial and is found guilty he could receive 47 to 57 months.
“This whole situation has been an overwhelming nightmare,” he says. “And even now, it’s coming down to the wire, and I still don’t know what decision I’m going to make.”
Santana then explains why he decided to take the deal.
“So I decided to take the plea,” he says. “I felt like it was the least selfish choice for my family. I still don’t have no full closure because at the end of the day, I know the final decision is on the judge. He could give me more time than I agreed on. Just when I felt like I was going to be getting some closure, the problems just begun.”
