Update: DMX Sentenced To Three Months In Jail, Denied Credit For Time Served

DMX was formally sentenced today in an Arizona court room to 90 days behind bars and and 18 months of supervised probation for drug, theft and animal cruelty charges, according to Phoenix’s KNXV-TV.

X (born Earl Simmons) has been in custody since early December, after getting picked up in producer Scott Storch’s house dodging a court appearance. As XXLmag.com previously reported the troubled rapper pleaded guilty to one count of animal cruelty, one count of theft and two counts of possession of marijuana and a narcotic drug, in order to have additional charges dropped.

Commissioner Phemonia Miller handed the Yonkers MC the stiff sentence earlier this morning with out any credit for the time he has already served.

“This guy has been in our custody for several weeks and has had problems with other inmates” Sheriff Joe Arpaio said in a written statement. “Despite that, he’s going to do his time in Tent City and be treated like every other inmate. He’ll wear pink underwear, a black and white striped uniform, eat the 20 cent meals, won’t be able to smoke or drink coffee, watch movies or much TV and if he violates policy, he may end up on a chain gang.”

X will be transferred to the Tent City prison facility in Arizona later this afternoon. – Elan Mancini
