News: DMX Sentenced for Tax Evasion, 1 Year in Prison

Last year, DMX was facing 14 counts and over 44 years in prison for tax evasion. He was said to have engaged in a ‘multi-year scheme’ to avoid paying $1.7 million in taxes to the IRS. His lawyer worked out a deal, pleading guilty to one count tax evasion and a one-year sentence, plus 3 years of supervised release.

Earlier this year DMX was sent to jail for violating his bail and failing a required drug test. The prosecutors originally wanted X to serve five years in prison but DMX addressed the judge taking full ownership of his past actions. They also played his ‘Slippin’ music video to reflect his struggles in life.
