Rapper Gucci Mane released early from Indiana prison

ATLANTA (AP) — A lawyer for rapper Gucci Mane says his client has been released a few months early from an Indiana prison where he was serving a federal firearms sentence.

Attorney Drew Findling says the 36-year-old music artist, whose real name is Radric Davis, was released Thursday from the Federal Correctional Institution in Terre Haute, Indiana. Findling says Davis was released early after a filed motion said the rapper hadn’t received credit for previous time served.

Davis was expected to be released in September.

The rapper was serving a three-year state sentence after pleading guilty to aggravated assault for attacking a fan at an Atlanta nightclub. That sentence ran concurrently with a 39-month federal sentence he was given in 2014 for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Findling says Davis’ federal prison time satisfied his state case.
