PnB Rock Pleads Guilty, Sentenced on Drug and Gun Charges
PnB Rock has been sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to charges stemming from a 2019 drug bust.
The 29-year-old rapper, born Rakim Hasheem Allen, was arrested in January 2019 after police executed a search warrant at his home near Philadelphia following “numerous complaints of loud parties and the constant smell of marijuana coming from the residence.” Investigators say they developed probable cause that he was selling weed.
During the search, police discovered four pounds of marijuana, scales, packaging material, over $33,000 in cash, and a stolen .40 caliber Glock handgun.
Allen was charged with possession with intent to deliver, possession of narcotics, receiving stolen property (for the stolen handgun), criminal conspiracy, and other related offenses. His girlfriend, model Stephanie Sibounheuang, was also arrested.
On Monday (Aug. 23), Allen pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to deliver and one count of receiving stolen property. He was sentenced to 36 months of probation and 100 hours of community service, according to PhillyVoice.
Sibounheuang pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance in September 2019 and was sentenced to six months of probation.
PnB Rock, whose latest single “Forever Never” dropped in May, was also arrested in Burbank, Calif. in January 2020 after he allegedly was street racing and injured two people as a result.
