It has not been revealed when Juelz will have to turn himself in.

On Wednesday (December 19th) Veteran rapper Juelz Santana was sentenced to 27 months in prison, after pleading guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, carrying a weapon on an aircraft, and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. TMZ broke the story.

This is stemming from the incident that occurred in March 2018 when he tried to take a loaded .38-caliber gun and some oxycodone pills in his travel bag at Newark International Airport. When TSA recovered the items, Santana fled the scene. He later turned himself in.

Santana, real name LaRon Louis James, will have to “be under supervised release” for one year following his prison stint. A date hasn’t been determined on when James will turn himself in.

This saga has been covered pretty closely on the latest season of Love & Hip Hop. In one of the episodes, Santana said that the incident occurred because he was high and forgot the items were in his bag.
