Judge Extends Beanie Sigel’s Probation

A federal judge extended Beanie Sigel’s probation by six months yesterday (February 21) when he appeared in court to explain why he failed a drug test in December and was also seen associating with convicted felons. According to the Philadelphia Daily News the hearing was requested by the U.S. Probation Office after Sigel failed to notify his probation officer when he was stopped by police in August of 2006. At the time, the rapper was in the company of at least one other convicted felon. “It’s kind of hard for me to know who I’m associating with in the business I’m in,” Sigel explained to U.S. District Court Judge R. Barclay Surrick. The judge was not satisfied with the explanation and countered, “You’re going to get this situation straightened out, you’re going to talk to probation, you’re going to get under control or otherwise I’m going to have to take action you’re not going to appreciate.” Sigel was also asked why he tested positive for codeine and morphine during a drug test last December. His attorney, Fortunato Perri Jr. provided the court with a prescription and a signed letter from Sigel’s doctor confirming that the drugs were issued to treat “flu-like symptoms.” Both Surrick and Assistant U.S. Attorney Curtis Douglas were satisfied with the explanation. Beanie was sentenced to one year and one day of probation and two years of supervised release in October 2004 after he plead guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm and a controlled substance.
