Juelz Santana Sentenced to Two Years' Probation After Threatening Neighbor
According to reports Santana, whose real name is LaRon James,
was allegedly assaulting his girlfriend when a neighbor intervened and called
authorities. In return the neighbor, who says he was merely playing good
Samaritan, claimed that the 30-year-old rap star then threatened him with death
and bodily harm.
"I had to move out of fear. I pay more rent now. I've been having problems
with my wife," the neighbor told the courts. "The only thing I want is for him
[Santana] not to come near me and my family."
The Harlem rapper, who was originally charged with assaulting his girlfriend
and the neighbor and with violating a restraining order, avoided jail time by
pleading to a third-degree charge of threatening the neighbor. Superior Court
Judge James Guida sentenced Santana to two years of probation and ordered him to
stay clear of his former neighbor.
Santana, who released his new mixtape, God Will’n, earlier this month,
still faces charges in a separate 2011 incident when Bergenfield, N.J., police
raided his recording studio and found 17 dime bags of marijuana, two 9mm hand
guns and ammunition.
