Willie D Ordered to Serve Prison Time in Cell Phone Scam

It’s a bad week for Southern rappers and the law. Just as T.I. and Gucci Mane returned to jail over the last two days, former Geto Boy Willie D was sentenced to a year and one day behind bars this morning for wire fraud charges.

According to the Houston Press, Willie will also have to pay $200,000 in restitution and will also have to serve three years of probation upon his release.

As previously reported, the Houston rapper was busted for scamming customers who thought they were buying iPhones and other electronics from his bogus Texas One Wireles Company. Investigators claim D has made around $132,000 through the scam, where he would sell the phones online and never deliver the merchandise. He plead guilty to the charges on December 18, 2009.

Willie’s ex-partner-in-rhyme, Bushwick Bill was recently freed from jail stemming from a drug arrest. Upon arrest, it was learned that Bill—a native of Jamaica—wasn’t a citizen of the U.S. and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) tried unsuccessfully to deport Bill. —Elan Mancini
