According to reports, Gucci could spend the next two years in jail.

Gucci pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in jail, but under Gucci’s plea deal, he’s only expected to face 39 months … minus 10 months credit for time served. Gucci will officially be sentenced in July. (TMZ)

Last month, reports revealed talks and possible negotiations were in the works.

In new court documents obtained exclusively by Radar, Gucci Mane, real name Radric Davis, and the lawyers for the U.S. government have asked the judge to push the trial – currently set for April 15 — to a later date as they work out a plea deal. “All parties anticipate resolution without the need of a trial,” the documents said.

Back in December, the ATL rapper 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)
