NEW ORLEANS -- Local rapper Christopher "BG" Dorsey was sentenced in federal court to 14 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to two counts of a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice, according to the U.S. Attorney General's Office.

Dorsey, who has three felony drug convictions from 1998 to 2003, was in possession of firearms between August 2009 and Nov. 2, 2009, and Nov. 3, 2009, according to the indictment.

"The indictment also charges Dorsey with conspiring to obstruct justice with two other individuals,  Jerod Fedison and Demounde Pollard.  The indictment alleges that these three individuals conspired with each other to obstruct justice by getting Pollard to sign a false affidavit attesting that neither Fedison nor Dorsey possessed three firearms on November 3, 2009," said a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Fedison and Pollard pleaded guilty in connection to the case, according to the U.S. Attorney General's Office. Fedison was sentenced to 20 years in prison and Pollard was sentenced to 30 months in prison.
