Alaska rapper JOKER THE BAILBONDSMAN has been handed a 10-year jail sentence, after he was caught red-handed selling crack cocaine to a government informant.
The hip-hop star, real name Sean Sullivan, was recently convicted on two charges of distribution of crack cocaine and one count of attempting to distribute the drug.
Sullivan, who is best known for his Bizzy Bone-assisted single Money in a Ziplock Bag (Uh Huh), is no stranger to law enforcement officials - he had a prior conviction in 2004, when he tried to discard two ounces (56.7 grams) of crack while he was being chased by Anchorage, Alaska cops, reports AllHipHop.com.
The '12 Years A Slave' director will receive the accolade at the London Film Festival in October.
Critics from all over the world were asked to name the best movie of the past 16 years.
