Wow! Things seriously keep getting worse and worse for ‘Pawn Stars’ figure Chumlee. After he was arrested on March 9 during a police raid, a criminal defense attorney tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY the reality star may never see the light of day again!
Things are getting serious for Chumlee, real name Austin Russell, who was arrested on March 9 during a sexual assault investigation that led to a police raid on his home. Cops found drugs and weapons as a result of the invasion and now a Nevada criminal attorney has spoken to Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY about what this all means for the Pawn Stars celeb. Hint: things are NOT pretty for the 33-year-old right now as he faces nearly 20 charges!
“Chumlee has been charged with 19 charges of drug possession and each charge could earn him 1-4 years if served consecutively,” Joel Mann, a criminal defense attorney in Nevada tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Whew — that’s a LOT of time! If you do the math, 19 multiplied by four equals 76, so it’s possible Chumlee could serve as much as seven decades worth of time. Although Joel added that that is unlikely to happen, it’s clear Chumlee is in serious trouble with the drugs and gun charges against him.
And if nearly 20 charges due to drug possession sounds like a lot, that’s because it IS! “Depending on how much drugs he had in his possession it could mean significant jail time,” Joel revealed. But let’s be honest, we knew Chumlee was in hot water from the get-go. Drug possession is no joke so it was obvious that the reality star wouldn’t be getting off easy. Nineteen is just a ton of charges to have piled on! And the lawyer agrees.
“It is unusual that he has 19 drug charges. Typically you have maybe three or four counts of drug possession,” he explained. “Usually it is different types of drugs that you get the different types of possession. I am not sure how he got charged with 19 counts of drug possession. That does seem unusual to me.” But unusual or not, Chumlee could be spending an awful lot of time in prison. And that’s not even considering the sexual assault case he was originally being investigated for.
HollywoodLifers, are you shocked by Chumlee’s arrest and all that he’s being charged for?
