Rapper BG Indicted on Gun Charges
Posted on May 23, 2011 in Celebrity Justice
Local rapper BG a.k.a. Baby Gangster has been a fixture in the New Orleans rap community since he signed with Cash Money Records at the age of 13. Now 30 years old, BG, whose legal name is Christopher Dorsey, has been indicted by a federal grand jury on gun and obstruction of justice charges.
In late 2009 Dorsey and two other men, Demounde Pollard and Jerod Fedison, were arrested for driving a stolen rental car with three loaded weapons hidden inside. As a convicted felon, Dorsey cannot legally have any weapons in his possession. Since that time Dorsey has released the acclaimed album Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood, but his legal troubles persisted.
Dorsey and Fedison both understood how they would benefit if Pollard, who was only 17 with a clean criminal record at the time of the arrest, would take ownership of the guns. They discussed this in recorded phone calls from within the Orleans Parish Jail. Fedison was also recorded telling Dorsey to post bond for Pollard and make the teenager sell drugs to pay the debt.
Pollard eventually signed an affidavit claiming responsibility for the weapons, but as a part of his plea deal, confessed that this was false.
