It looks like 42 Dugg is on the verge of taking a plea deal for his gun possession case. According to DJ Vlad, the Detroit rapper is currently in negotiations with federal prosecutors in Georgia to work out a plea deal.

42 Dugg's attorney confirmed the plea negotiations and added, "both parties are still hopeful that a resolution can be reached in the near future." DJ Vlad added that Dugg, whose real name is Dion Hayes, will most likely be pleading guilty to a federal offense.

A evidentiary hearing was scheduled for May 24, but was postponed amid the plea agreement negotiations.

The charges stem from Dugg going to a gun range in November 2019, which earned him a federal charge of possessing a firearm as a felon. That charge could cost the rapper up to 10 years in federal prison.

Dugg remains on pre-trial release, which allows him to travel for business purposes. Typically in federal plea deals, a judge has the final say in determining his sentences, but prosecutors agree not to seek more than a pre-agreed prison term.
