News: B.G. Follows "No Snitching" Street Code, Pleads Guilty In Felony Gun Case
Thursday, Dec 8, 2011 9:06AM
Former Hot Boys member B.G. has reportedly turned down any sort of plea agreement in a gun possession case dating back two years ago and now faces time behind bars.
According to reports, B.G. decided to take the "no sniching" route and faced the possible consequences this week in court.
As he introduces the video for his song "I Ain't Tellin," hip-hop superstar B.G. sits in a luxury vehicle with a rapper colleague, bemoaning the state of street culture. "This f--king ratting s--t, man, this s--t here is getting out of hand," B.G. says. "Man, it's called T-Y-C. Take Your Charge." On Wednesday morning, B.G. -- also known as Christopher Dorsey -- did exactly that. Clad in an orange jail jumpsuit, his hands shackled and his lawyer by his side, Dorsey stood before U.S. District Court Judge Ginger Berrigan. Asked whether he was guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm and witness tampering, Dorsey again answered in the affirmative. But prosecutors made clear there is no plea agreement or deal in place. Now, he faces a prison stint that could stretch 40 years. (NOLA)
The rapper's fate will be read to him come March 14th.

Last year, B.G. stated his innocence by pleading not guilty to the charges against him.
