As more information about Boosie Badazz’s arrest comes to light, FBI agents appear to have discovered that Boosie was a firearm involved after seeing him on Instagram Live.
In a criminal complaint unsealed by a judge, federal prosecutors said Boosie’s arrest came on May 6 after local police saw the rapper in an Instagram video of a “known gang member” carrying a “black pistol in the back waistband.” ”
And Boosie is a convicted felon.
A conviction for a felony can carry more than just a prison sentence and a fine, whether it is found in state or federal court. Under federal law, possession of a firearm or ammunition is illegal for any person convicted of a crime punishable by more than a year in prison. In addition, it is unlawful for a person convicted of a criminal offense to send, transport, receive, or possess a firearm or ammunition.
Possession of a firearm or ammunition when prohibited by federal law, whether as a convicted felony or meeting other criteria, is punishable by up to 15 years in prison and/or a fine.
Federal prosecutors have charged Boosie with violating federal laws that prohibit a previously convicted felon from possessing a firearm (the rapper was previously convicted of drug offenses in Louisiana in 2011).
