DMX Sentenced to Year in Jail for Probation Violation

DMX will be spending the New Year behind bars. In a court appearance earlier today (December 16) in Arizona, a judge sentenced the troubled rapper to one year in jail for violating his probation last month, reports the Phoenix New Times.

As previously reported, X was brought into custody on November 18, after he reportedly failed to submit a drug test to his probation officer and was caught driving on a suspended license.

The Ruff Ryder denied the charges during his last court date on November 24, but he changed his tune today, pleading guilty. “I did make the effort that I could, and I appreciate any help you can give me,” he said.

Under a strict supervision since getting out of jail in July for an assault conviction, X reportedly tested positive five times for cocaine. “Substance abuse issues are at the root of this problem,” the judge told the Yonkers MC. —Elan Mancini
