42 Dugg has been behind bars since 2022 in a case that has played out over the last few year and his experience has been quite dispressing.
In a now-deleted Instagram post shared on Tuesday (May 16th), 42 Dugg opened up about the distressing circumstances he’s allegedly facing in prison, including the lack of hot water for his food.
“let me update y’all on what’s really going on,” Digg began. “atl us marshalls tryna keep me from going home I supposed to get out oct 14th of last year they illegally held me without reasoning because they felt my federal judge in Detroit shouldn’t of gave me ah bond, I let that slide then after I got sentenced one of tell me he not sending me to ah prison, he gone make me do my time in ah county jail which is ten time worst, then he had the nerve to tell me he knows where I live.”
He continued: “I supposed to had court today for ah old case The us marshals then told the jail dont let me on zoom to handle the case so I can’t possibly go to the halfway house. Bruh these muthafuckas been sending all kinda guards to talk to me seeing if ima ask for something the crazy thing is they putting me on game, they telling me the marshals tryna ruin your life, they dont want you going home. They haven’t even submitted my paperwork for me to receive my out date and calculate my days, I need. The best civil lawyer in Georgia man.”
“Im in jail for going to the gun range, dropping dirty and failure to appear. I didn’t steal from nobody, hurt nobody, they handling me crazy. Man im in this bitch heating my food up with the water from the nasty ass shower. They dont even give us hot water to heat our food up aint no microwave, I can’t get no visits from my family nothing. Im sure they gone do some more illegal shit but what I pose to die in this bitch for probation violation.”
42 Dugg was sentenced after entering a guilty plea for prison evasion in a case that spanned several years.
As per the report from Detroit News, the renowned rapper from Detroit has been handed a one-year imprisonment sentence on Wednesday (April 26), which is higher than the recommended six-month jail term by the prosecutors. Besides, he has also been ordered to pay a fine of $20,000 and refrain from consuming illegal drugs. Additionally, he will be under strict surveillance for three years after completing his prison term.
In February, Dugg admitted guilt in his case for failing to surrender. Despite the prosecution’s agreement to suggest a six-month sentence, which he had evaded, Judge William Ray II had the discretion to reject the proposal and impose a prison term of up to five years on Dugg.
In November 2019, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) received a tip that Dugg, a convicted felon with prior charges for carjacking and firearms possession, had unlawfully discharged a firearm at an Atlanta gun range. This led to his arrest and subsequent felony firearms possession charges in March 2020.
In May 2021, 42 Dugg and his legal representatives engaged in plea negotiations for the gun charge, which had a potential imprisonment of up to 10 years. Through the plea agreement, he was able to evade incarceration and instead received probation. Regrettably, his probation was revoked by a judge shortly after, resulting in a six-month imprisonment term and two-year period of supervised release.
Last year, in April, it was anticipated that 42 Dugg would submit himself and turn up at a penitentiary in West Virginia. However, he failed to do so, and subsequently, federal officers had to retrieve him upon his arrival at a Detroit airport in May.
He initially pleaded not guilty with the excuse that he’s a sovereign citizen and doesn’t have to comply with federal law. That failed to work, however.
