B.G. Sentenced to 14 Years in Federal Prison
Christopher “B.G.” Dorsey of the 90′s hip hop group “Hot Boys” was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison today for gun possession and witness tampering.
Police found three guns, along with loaded magazines during a 2009 traffic stop in New Orleans. Two of the guns had been reported stolen and the car itself had been stolen from an Alamo rental car parking lot.
Dorsey had pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm, but later obstructed justice by pushing one of his 2 associates to falsely claim ownership of the gun.
Dorsey confessed to the crimes but prosecutors made clear that he was not cooperating, staying in line with the “no-snitch” philosophy he so often espoused in his songs. They are also linking him to two high-profile murders in the area.
