TERRE HAUTE — A lawyer for rapper Gucci Mane says his client has been released a few months early from an Indiana prison where he was serving a federal firearms sentence.
Attorney Drew Findling says the 36-year-old music artist, whose real name is Radric Davis, was released Thursday from the Federal Correctional Institution in Terre Haute, Indiana. Findling says Davis was released early after a filed motion said the rapper hadn’t received credit for previous time served.
Davis was expected to be released in September.
The rapper was serving a three-year state sentence after pleading guilty to aggravated assault for attacking a fan at an Atlanta nightclub in March 2013. That sentence ran concurrently with a 39-month federal sentence he was given in 2014 for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Findling says Davis’ federal prison time satisfied his state case.
Gucci Mane tweeted yesterday that he’s already planning to release a new song tonight and he has a tour scheduled for September.
