JACKSONVILLE, Fla.- A convicted felon seen holding a gun in a rap music video was sentenced to 41 months in federal prison, the office of U.S. Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez announced Friday.

Richard Leroy Douglas, 25, of Jacksonville, pleaded guilty July 9 to possession of a firearm as a convicted felon, federal prosecutors said.

Douglas was previously convicted in 2014 of sale or delivery of cocaine in Duval County and sentenced to 15 months in that case, Florida Department of Corrections records show.

A friend of mines brother posed in a video similar to this situation.
He was a convicted felon as well. Only the gun was a prop. They also had a pile of flour they used in the video simulating a pile of cocaine. Somehow the police found out about it and arrested him. Since he couldn’t afford a decent atty or prove otherwise he was charged with felon in possession as well as possession of drugs. He was convicted and served three years in prison. Then on the day of his release they revoked his green card and deported him to Nicaragua the moment he walked out of his cell. Still there today ten years later.

There is something fundamentally wrong with a conviction for sale/distribution of cocaine ending up with a sentence of 15 months. 15 months??? Hardly worth the effort and expense of a trial. Might as well just let him go with a dumb sentence like that.

Nope. Nothing missed. No real gun or drugs ever found or collected. Public defender sucked ass and he got convicted.
Sentenced, served, deported.
