Turns out Gucci Mane may be heading home sooner than expected. Apparently, prison officials had not done their math properly. Instead of waiting for next year, the rapper will be released come September, 2016. Gucci was arrested after he violated his probation terms.
According to his probation release terms, he was not to carry a gun for any purpose or in any situation. Unfortunately for him, he was caught at one point in 2013 carrying a gun, a violation that saw him sentenced to thirty nine months behind bars.
He was first taken to a prison in Georgia only to be later moved to a federal jail. Through his lawyers, Mane argued in court that his sentence was not properly calculated. According to the documents he filed, his sentence is supposed to end this September if you calculate the time he served in a Georgia prison plus the time he has served in the federal prison. A judge agrees.
According to the judge, the Bureau of Prisons needed had their math wrong. The judge said it was indeed an error that needed to be corrected. Counting from December 2013 when he started serving his time, his 39 months end in just a few months time.
