Petey Pablo has been sentenced to spend 35 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to possessing a stolen firearm and bringing it through a North Carolina airport.

Pablo appeared in a NC courtroom yesterday and pleaded guilty on the charges that were stemming from a September 11, 2010 arrest in the Raleigh Durham Airport after airport security found a pistol in his carry-on luggage when it went through an X-ray machine at the security checkpoint.

During the investigation, it was revealed that the gun was stolen in a home burglary in Gardena, CA in 2005.

Although Pablo has been sentenced, no information on when he has to check into prison has been revealed.
