Bryan Leach - Hip-hop Mogul Facing Two Years In Prison For Gun Possession
Hip-hop mogul Bryan Leach is facing two years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of weapons possession.
The record executive, who is credited with discovering rappers Pitbull and Lil Jon, was taken into custody in New York City in October, 2010, after police found a loaded handgun in his vehicle during a traffic stop.
He was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and on Monday (24Sep12) he accepted a plea deal at the Manhattan Supreme Court in exchange for a 24-month prison sentence and one year post-release supervision. He originally faced up to seven-and-a-half-years behind bars.
The 43 year old is due to be formally sentenced on 16 November (12), according to the New York Daily News.
