Ja Rule Pleads Guilty

Ja Rule pleaded guilty Dec. 13 to attempted criminal possession of a weapon stemming from a July 2007 stop of his luxury sports car.

The rapper admitted to a charge that involves attempting to have a loaded gun outside one’s home or workplace.

Police said they found a loaded semiautomatic gun in a rear door of the $250,000-plus vehicle after it was stopped for speeding when Ja Rule was leaving Beacon Theatre.

Ja Rule was promised a two-year sentence; the 34-year-old could have faced up to 15 years in prison if convicted on the gun charge.

“This is not a good day,” Ja Rule said as he left the court.

Lil Wayne, who was headlining the Beacon show, was arrested after the concert on a gun possession charge.
