Christopher Dorsey, better known as B.G. or Baby Gangsta, gained international acclaim for his songs detailing drug dealing, violence and his no-snitch mantra. His most recent album, "Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood," came out in 2009. Now however, the 31-year-old rapper has been sentenced to fourteen years in Federal Prison for gun possession and witness tampering.
A 2009 traffic stop in New Orleans, combined with a lengthy criminal history, marked the end of the rapper's freedom. When police stopped Dorsey and two of his associates, a search of their vehicle produced three guns, along with loaded magazines. Two of the guns had been reported stolen and the car itself had been stolen from an Alamo rental car parking lot. Dorsey pled guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm. Later, he obstructed justice by pushing one of his two associates to falsely claim ownership of the gun and was charged with witness tampering.
If you or someone you know has been charged with witness tampering, felon in possession of a firearm, or any other type of criminal offense, it is essential to hire an experienced Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who can aggressively fight for you.
