Rapper Soulja Boy was sentenced to 240 days in jail and 265 days of community service on Tuesday for violating his weapons probation earlier this year, TMZ reports.
According to the outlet, a Los Angeles judge told Soulja (whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way) that he originally considered sentencing him to two years in state prison but decided to give him some leniency due to the business opportunities that he’s missing out on. Soulja — who has been held in a Los Angeles jail without bail since April 11 — was reportedly given credit for 40 days served.
On April 11, a judge ruled that Soulja had violated his probation related to weapon charges based on the February raid. Additionally, the judge also said he violated his probation by allegedly trying to falsify evidence that he completed mandatory community service he was sentenced, The Blastreported.
