NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted New Orleans rapper B.G. on gun and conspiracy charges.
U.S. Attorney Jim Letten says according to Thursday's
indictment, the 30-year-old rapper, whose real name is Christopher Dorsey, faces two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice.
If convicted, Dorsey faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the gun charges and up to 20 years and a $250,000 fine on the conspiracy charge.
It was not immediately known whether Dorsey had an attorney and a telephone listing could not be found for him.
B.G. is probably best known for 1999's hit "Bling Bling."
