NEWARK, N.J. — Rapper Juelz Santana’s scheduled trial on charges he tried to get a gun onto a plane at an airport has been pushed back so he can continue negotiations for a plea deal.
A trial had been scheduled for early September. But an order filed this month extended the trial date at least until Sept. 30 “to permit defence counsel the reasonable time necessary for effective preparation in this matter and to allow the parties to enter into plea negotiations.”
