Gucci Mane Denied Early Release, Hit With Civil Lawsuit

Gucci Mane Denied Early Release, Hit With Civil Lawsuit

The incarcerated Atlanta rapper's legal troubles are piling up.

Published October 29, 2011

Just last week, Waka Flocka Flame was falsely claiming that Gucci Mane had been released from prison. But that was wishful thinking to the highest degree—not only was Gucci denied an early release by a judge today, he was also served with a civil lawsuit.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a DeKalb County judge denied the Atlanta rapper's bid to cut short his six-month sentence for battery. Gucci's lawyer had proposed to the court that his client's sentence be halved in exchange for a benefit concert on behalf of the DeKalb County Battered Women's Shelter.

But that's not all: Directly after the judge's ruling, Gucci was hit with a civil lawsuit by the victim of his April assault case.

After Gucci completes his full six-month bid, he'll have to tackle 12 weeks of anger management classes, as well as $5,091 for the victim's medical bills and a $3,000 fine.
