[Music News] JayDaYoungan Pleads Guilty In Federal Gun Case

JayDaYoungan has been released from jail after serving around seven months on firearm

charges served by U.S. District Judge Sarah S. Vance on Thursday (Jun. 16), according to the

United States Department of Justice.

Javorius “JayDaYoungan” Scott pleaded guilty to a federal gun crime and served around seven months on firearms charges. He is also going to serve one year of supervised release. In addition, he has to pay a $5,500 fine and a $100 mandatory special assessment fee.

The “23 Island” rapper was arrested by cops from Bogalusa Police Department on October 28, 2021. He was initially stopped due to a switched license plate on his car which he failed to provide his license or vehicle registration. Police also spotted a loaded Ruger, Security-9, 9mm, pistol in the car along with marijuana.

At the time of his arrest, JayDaYoungan was under indictment for felony crimes in Harris

County, Texas. In December 2021, he was reportedly facing a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison, as well as three years of probation and a $250,000 fine.

JayDaYoungan has been in trouble with the law countless times. Dating back to 2019, the

Louisiana rapper has faced plenty of charges for several crimes in which he was accused of

beating up his girlfriend-- who was pregnant at the time of the assault.

In September '21, he was taken into custody on counts of accessory to second-degree murder for his alleged role in a shooting that left one dead and two injured that took place in 2020.

When he was released from prison in 2021, the rapper released a "First Day Out" record in addition to him being a freed man. The 23-year-old has yet to drop anything as of right now, but it could be on the way.
