Rapper Petey Pablo pleaded guilty to possession of a stolen firearm during a hearing at a North Carolina court on Wednesday (16Mar11).
The star, real name Moses Barrett Iii, handed himself in to authorities after a warrant for his arrest was put out in October (10) in connection with an incident at Raleigh-Durham International Airport in September (10).
Barrett was on his way to the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles when security officers allegedly found a gun in his carry-on luggage.
He was charged with possession of a stolen firearm, possession of a firearm by a felon and attempting to take the gun onto an airplane.
On Wednesday, Barrett admitted the first charge after prosecutors agreed to drop the two other charges in a plea agreement.
He is facing up to 10 years behind bars when he is sentenced in June (11).
