Juelz Santana can go on tour while he’s facing weapons charges, providing he’s monitored by an electronic ankle bracelet and his mom.
A federal judge on June 15th, 2018 modified the bail conditions for Juelz to allow him to play the first five shows of his upcoming 15-city nationwide tour.
The conditions are: that Santana’s mother accompanies him on the trips, that he drives instead of flies and that they don’t travel with other members of the tour.
In court Santana told the judge that his mother, who wasn’t in attendance, had consented to join him on the tour.
Santana will be back in court next month for a review of “how things went” on tour and to discuss whether he can play other shows, U.S. District Judge Michael Hammer said.
“I view it as a reasonable and productive exercise of his time to work and provide for his family,” Hammer said. Prosecutors had opposed changing the bail conditions.
Santana has pleaded not guilty to charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and carrying a weapon on an aircraft. He faces up to 20 years in prison.
