Hip Hop Icon DMX Sentenced, Probation Revoked, Must Spend 1 Year In Jail
Hip Hop Icon, rapper and actor DMX, born Earl Simmons, 39, has reportedly been sentenced to a one year jail sentence on Thursday after appearing before Arizona Judge Christine Mulleneaux on probation violation charges.
DMX who has had multiple run-ins and trouble with the law, as covered on HipHopRX.com, was arrested back in November at his home and charged with violating probation due to failing drug tests.
DMX also reportedly failed to check in with his probation officer and refused to go thru court-appointed treatment and counseling.
Simmons appeared before the courts on yesterday and admitted to the judge his consumption of alcohol while tests showed DMX also had consumed cocaine and oxycontin.
The rapper’s probation, stemming from his prior 2009 conviction on charges of assault, identity theft, fraud, and other misdemeanor charges, was revoked and DMX has been sentenced to one year in jail.
