DMX Handed One Year Sentence For Tax Fraud
Earlier today DMX was sentenced to one year in prison for tax evasion after pleading guilty to dodging $1.7 million in taxes.
Prosecutors argued that DMX lived a “cash-only lifestyle for years” and depositing royalty checks into bank accounts that belonged to his manager, his ex-wife, and the mother of one of his children.
Judge Rakoff stated that he believed that DMX was a good man at heart and handed him less than the 5-years in prison that prosecutors were seeking, but added that in regards to his crimes “It cannot go unpunished.”
