Exclusive: DMX’s Lawyer Issues Statement On Latest Arrest
(AllHipHop News) A lawyer for DMX has confirmed that the rapper surrendered to authorities in Los Angeles today (July 26th) to begin serving a three month prison sentence.
DMX appeared in a Los Angeles court, where he was sentenced to the three months, for violating the terms of his 2002 probation for a reckless driving charge.
“Mr. Simmons is here today to fully cooperate with respect to any matters of the Court’s concern,” DMX’s lawyer Aja M. Southern told AllHipHop.com. “This is one of many steps towards rebuilding his image and rapport with the community and his loyal fans.”
The jail sentence comes on the heels of DMX’s release from prison earlier this month, after he served four months in an Arizona jail.
In that incident, the rapper violated his probation when he tested positive for cocaine and was found guilty of other infractions, which violated his probation in another case.
