Rapper Gucci Mane, real name Radric Davis may be able to avoid a long prison sentence with a plea deal. Mane is set to go on trial on April 15 for two September incidents where he threatened police officers with a gun. New court documents revealed that the U.S. Government asked the judge in the case to push the trial back in order to give them time to work out a plea deal.

The court documents stated, “All parties anticipate resolution without the need of a trial. This past December, Davis was charged in federal court on two counts of possessing a firearm as a felon. Should no plea deal take place and he is convicted, Davis could be sentenced to up to 20 years in prison.

The court documents to push the trial back stated, “The parties believe they may have resolved this matter subject to certain approvals including a meeting with the Court. However, due to various schedule conflicts, counsel have been unable to finalize the matter and given defense counsels respective absence from the jurisdiction over the next week, will be unable to finalize the matter prior to the trial date.”

Once all of the lawyers for both sides have returned to work, the plan is for them to present the court with the plea deal and ask that it be approved.
