News: 51-Year-Old Prisoner Does Unthinkable, Tries To Free Gucci Mane

Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane is proving his fans range in all ages as reports claim a 51-year-old prisoner has tried to help spring him from behind bars.
Details of the inmate's attempt to help Gucci out of his legal crunch have surfaced online.
It's like the prison version of "My Cousin Vinny" -- a random inmate in South Carolina has just prepared legal docs to get Gucci Mane out of jail ... and they're hilarious. 51-year-old Jerry Lewis Dedrick -- who's currently locked up in a Williamsburg federal prison -- has taken it upon himself to get Gucci off gun charges (without Gucci asking) filing a scribbled motion. To his credit, Dedrick has been spending a lot of time reading -- not like he has other stuff to do -- and claims he's discovered the key to Gucci's case. (TMZ)
Although Dedrick cannot legally pull this off, he may try to pass the documents off to Gucci's attorneys.
Several problems -- first, his argument makes no sense. Dedrick rambles on about how possessing a gun in itself isn't a federal crime. Dedrick isn't Gucci's lawyer, so he can't file docs on the rapper's behalf. But Dedrick wants the court to forward his legal work to Gucci's lawyer ... hoping it will crack the case. Gucci's currently locked up in Georgia following his September arrest for gun and weed possession -- and if this is his best shot at freedom, he's going nowhere fast. (TMZ)
Back in December, Gucci received bad news in court after being indicted on felony charges.
Rapper Gucci Mane was charged in federal court Tuesday with two counts of possessing a firearm as a felon after two September incidents during which he showed a gun and threatened police, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Georgia. Reports at the time indicated that the "Lemonade" rhymer was arrested in Atlanta on September 14 after a friend flagged down police to say he was concerned about the rapper's behavior. (CNN)
Mane found himself in handcuffs after a couple of September incidents.
Early Sept. 14, a man who said he was a friend of the rapper's called police to say Davis was walking down the street behaving violently, according to a police report. When police arrived, Davis smelled strongly of marijuana, cursed at them, called them names and threatened to shoot them, the report says. Police arrested him on a disorderly conduct charge and found a clear baggie with what they believe was marijuana and a loaded .40-caliber Glock handgun, the report says. An ambulance was called, and Davis was sedated and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment. (ABC News)
