DMX Sentenced To 1 Year In Jail For Tax Evasion

DMX’s fate was handed to him in his tax evasion case, and it adds up to one year in prison. X was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff today (3/28) in Manhattan, after he initially pled guilty to dodging $1.7 million in taxes.

The Prosecution argued X lived a cash-only lifestyle for years after depositing royalty checks into accounts that belonged to his manager, his ex-wife, and the mother of one of his children. The judge however believed that DMX was a good man and gave him less than the 5-years that prosecutors were seeking, but added that “It cannot go unpunished.”
