The rapper was denied a chance at a sentence reduction when a DeKalb County judge ruled against his attorney’s motion. To make matters worse, Gucci was hit with a civil by a woman he pushed her from a moving vehicle when she refused his offer of $150 to go to a hotel.
“He thinks the rules don’t apply to him,” said the woman’s attorney, B.J. Bernstein. She told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that she wants Gucci to be held accountable for his actions.
“He pushed a woman out of a moving Hummer,” she said. “Sometimes jail is not enough for some people and some people who have celebrity and the one thing that scares them more than anything else is to go after them civilly.”
Gucci’s attorney offered to have the rapper give a free performance at the DeKalb County Battered Women’s Shelter, but the judge in the case wasn’t having it.
“I don’t think it would be appropriate to let him out just because he’s a rapper,” DeKalb State Court Judge Eleanor Ross said.
