Rapper Juvenile was sentenced to six months of probation after he pleaded guilty to possessing marijuana last week.
According to police, Juvenile was arrested in February of 2009, after neighbors called the police to complain about the smell of smoke emanating from the house in Arabi.
Juvenile, born Terius Gray, was at the residence utilizing a home recording studio when police knocked on the door to investigate the neighbors' claim.
A search of the house turned up a small amount of marijuana in the kitchen, which Juvenile admitted was his.
Both Juvenile, 34 and music producer Leroy Edwards, 42, were charged with marijuana possession.
In addition to the six months of probation, Juvenile was fined $250 and must also pay court costs.
