Bryan Leach, the senior vice president of RCA, pleaded guilty to second-degree attempted gun possession Monday (Sept. 24). Pending sentencing, Leach will also be required to serve over a year of probation.

Leach, who has worked with artists like Lil Jon and the Ying Yang Twins, and signed A$AP Rocky, faces up to two years behind bars, stemming from an arrest, in 2010. 

Leach was pulled over for driving erratically through New York City in a 2006 Bentley.  Police uncovered a loaded Kel-Tec hand gun inside the car’s console.

Speaking no words while in a Manhattan court room yesterday, Leach’s charges were reduced from two counts of weapons possession, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 3 1/2 years in prison.

Getting caught with a gun in New York usually results in jail time. Both Lil Wayne and Ja Rule were put behind bars for weapons possession, while football player Plaxico Burress served two years for sneaking a gun into a New York City nightclub and accidentally shooting himself in the leg. He was released from custody last June.

Leach remains free until he is scheduled to be  sentenced by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Lewis Bart Stone, on Nov. 8.
