Former California drug kingpin, Freeway Ricky Ross, may be facing time in prison again … for allegedly violating his parole.
According to AllHipHop.com, Ross (now a community activist) is being accused of associating with convicted felons by placing phone calls to former inmates.
He is scheduled to appear before a judge to face the music on Tuesday (October 11), and could face as much as six months behind bars.
“These were people that I served the majority of my time with, people who helped me,” Rick Ross explained to AllHipHop of the calls. “I’m talking about guys who taught me how to read and write, guys who helped me with my case and eventually my freedom.”
Ross was released from prison in September 2009. He was originally sentenced to life in prison for attempting to purchase 100 kilos of cocaine from a federal agent in 1996. However, his sentence was reduced when it was discovered that one of his sources was connected to the C.I.A. and the Iran-Contra scandal.
Since his release, he’s launched his website, FreewayEnterprises.com, and is currently producing a movie about his life.
“[The judge and I] have a long history. It’s going to be like an old reunion,” Ross said of the appearance. “She knows me well and I believe she will be impressed that I haven’t committed any crimes. She knows I don’t lie to her and I think she respects me. The last time I saw her, she knocked four years off my sentence. I think she did that because of how far I came. She hasn’t seen me in five or six years, so when she see me now, I’ve grown even more.”
