Prodigy’s Jail Sentence Postponed Another Five Weeks

Prodigy of Mobb Deep was supposed to start serving his 3 ½ year sentence for a weapons conviction on Tuesday (January 8), but at the last minute a judge granted him another five weeks of freedom. According to the New York Daily News, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Edward McLaughlin postponed the rapper’s sentencing in order to give doctors time to collect his medical records. Prodigy has long suffered from the life threatening blood disease sickle cell anemia. P’s attorney Irving Cohen told the court that his client has been in and out of hospitals his entire life because of the illness. McLaughlin has agreed to speak with state corrections officials about placing the rapper in a correctional facility with access to medical personnel. In October Prodigy accepted a plea to charges of weapons possession in exchange for the 3 ½ year sentence. The charge stems from a 2005 incident in which police discovered a .22 caliber pistol after pulling over the vehicle that him and producer The Alchemist were traveling in.
