...for 70 days!http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/mndwebpages/dmx%20sentenced%20to%2070%20days%20in%20jail
LATEST: Rapper DMX escaped a year's jail sentence in court in New York yesterday (18NOV05) but will still have to serve 70 days behind bars for violating his release conditions following a 2004 arrest after he pretended to be a federal agent and attempted to steal a car.
The rap star, real name EARL SIMMONS, was originally sentenced to spend 60 days in New York's Rikers Island prison after pleading to violating his deal last month (OCT05), but judge DOROTHY CHIN-BRANDT added 10 days when DMX showed up for his sentencing hearing almost three hours late on Thursday (17NOV05).
Nice! Guess what DMX, you aren't Michael Jackson - you have to be on time.
