DMX Will Be Released From Prison, According to His Lawyer
DMX is scheduled to be released from prison Friday morning, according to reports. The former Ruff Ryders rapper was sentenced to a year in federal prison after pleading guilty to a $1.7 million tax fraud case. X’s lawyer, Murray Richman confirmed,
He’s coming home tomorrow. I spoke to him; he’s very happy. He’s looking forward to being home. He’s never been hotter than now — people have been seeking him out all over.
X’s release date is actually scheduled for Jan. 27, this coming Sunday, but due to a rule, any release date falling on a weekend, the prisoner will be released on the preceding weekday. Upon release, X, 48, will also be under supervision for the next three years.
In November 2017, X pleaded guilty to one count of tax fraud after evading the payment of income taxes in the period ranging from 2010 through 2016. He was accused of engaging in a scheme of concealing millions of dollars of income from the IRS and avoiding paying $1.7 million of tax liabilities.
In addition to being home, X is expected to be releasing a new album and a documentary.
