The judge also ordered the seizure of $41,000 of that money. Authorities detained the popular reggaeton and trap singer in March 2018 after he arrived by helicopter from the Dominican Republic. He was briefly placed under house arrest with an ankle monitor.
Farruko, whose real name is Carlos Efrén Reyes, had told reporters that he was singing in the Dominican Republic and forgot to report the money. Federal authorities had asked for a 16-month prison sentence.
