Snoop Dogg sentenced in court

The rapper pleads guilty to dangerous weapon charge

Snoop Dogg has been sentenced to three years probation and 160 hours of community service after admitting to carrying a dangerous weapon.

He has also been told to donate £5,000 to a children’s charity by the court.

The rapper was found with a collapsible baton in his luggage at John Wayne Airport in California last September.

Snoop Dogg‘s lawyer, Donald Etra, said the baton had been used by his client in a musical sketch and had advised him to plead not guilty, but Snoop Dogg agreed to a plea deal, wanting to resolve the issue, reports BBC 6Music.
