JuvenileNew Orleans rapper Juvenile pleaded guilty to a marijuana possession charge in Louisiana, managing to dodge jail time.

The 34-year-old rapper (real name: Terius Gray) entered his plea last Thursday (August 10) to a misdemeanor possession of marijuana stemming from an arrest from February.

The judge gave Juve a suspended sentence of three months in jail, six months probation, and pay a $250 fine and court costs.

Juve was arrested in late February when cops were called to a friend's home in Arabi, Louisiana -- where he was recording -- when neighbors called police because of an overwhelming smell of marijuana smoke coming from the residence.

When police showed, they searched the home and arrested two people.

Juvenile's latest album, Beast Mode, is in stores now.
