   Last January, former Love & Hip Hop Star Benzino was arrest for drug possession. He now faces two felony charges and a misdemeanor in the state of Georgia. Benzino was charged with two felony possessions of THC oil gummies (22 grams) 6 MDMA pills, and misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce of weed.

Police executed a search warrant and raided Benzino’s apartment in Atlanta, finding the drugs in his drawers and cabinets. He was arrested during the search and released on a $12K bond. Benzino’s legal team tried to argue against authorities indicating that the search was illegal but a judge ruled that the search was legal.

Benzino will find out today (December 12th) if the case will be going to trial. The trial can start as early as next month is he does not take a plea deal. Id convicted, he may be facing up to 15 years in prison.
