Thursday Ja Rule was denied a dismissal for a gun possession charge from back in March of 2007. Ja Rule (Jeffrey Atkins) was pulled over in NYC after a performance and when cops searched his Maybach, they discovered an unregistered .40 caliber pistol and a small bag of weed. The judge dismissed the possession charges since Ja admitted to owning it (which is good cuz it was his car and he was alone so… yea). However, Ja will have to appear in court again to face the gun possession charges. If found guilty, he’s facing a minimum of 3 and ½-years in prison.
