The MC was convicted of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and sentenced to a minimum of14 years in prison back in 2001. According to court documents, he was caught with two briefcases containing $1.4 million worth cocaine at Newark International Airport in 2000. His sentence will expire December 22, 2008. Forte is to be freed under a five-year supervised release and must pay a $5, 000 fine. He is one of two inmates to receive a reduced sentence. The other 14 inmates were pardoned. -Bruce Moses
