Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane was handed some bad news after appearing in court on Friday (October 28) after his jail reduction plea was rejected by a Dekalb County judge.
According to reports, Gucci was also issued a civil suit while in court.
The bad news came in twos Friday for rapper Gucci Mane, aka Radric Davis, who learned he was being slapped with a civil suit minutes after a DeKalb County judge ruled against his attorney’s motion for reduced jail time. The woman identified Davis by the ice cream cone tattoo on the rapper’s face. Her attorney, B.J. Bernstein, said Friday Davis needs to be held accountable. “He thinks the rules don’t apply to him,” she said. Davis’ attorneys, seeking to get his six-month jail sentence cut in half Friday, offered to have the 31-year-old MC stage a concert on behalf of the DeKalb County Battered Women’s Shelter. But DeKalb State Court Judge Eleanor Ross was not moved, saying. “I don’t think it would be appropriate to let him out just because he’s a rapper.” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Earlier in the day, reports emerged online showing Gucci Mane’s intent to have his six-month sentence reduced.
Radric Davis, also known as rapper “Gucci Mane,” appeared in the State Court of DeKalb County hoping to reduce his sentence for pushing a woman out of his car on January 28, 2011. On September 13, 2011, Davis plead guilty to two counts of battery, two counts of reckless conduct, and disorderly conduct.

Gucci’s close friend/producer DJ Holiday recently hit up SOHH and shared his take on the legal situation.
“It’s never a good feeling, man,” Holiday told SOHH. “You never wanna see your friends put in jail — but Gucci’s a strong dude. It’s not like he hasn’t been in the situation before. It’s unfortunate, but at the same time the system’s wack, man. I don’t know exactly all the details of it, but he’s my friend and I got files and files of music on him that people ain’t never heard so it’s nothing for me to get a call from him to put [more] music out.” (SOHH)
Around mid-September, Gucci pleaded guilty to an assault charge and was sentenced to six months behind bars.
The Atlanta-based rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, was arrested in April for the January incident and charged with two counts of battery, two counts of reckless conduct and one count of disorderly conduct. In addition to the jail sentence, Davis was sentenced by a DeKalb County Court judge to 30 months’ probation and ordered to pay a $3,000 fine. He must also attend a 12-week anger management course, refrain from contacting his victim and pay her medical bills, totaling more than $5,000. He was being held Tuesday in DeKalb County Jail.
