Beanie Sigel - Beanie Sigel's Sentencing Postponed13 April 2012
Sigel, real name Dwight Grant, was accused of owing $350,000 (£219,000) in back taxes from earnings between 2003 and 2005, and last summer (Jul11) he pleaded guilty to a charge of failing to report his $1.5 million (£1 million) income.
The hip-hop star was due to face sentencing at a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania court on Thursday (12Apr12) but a judge pushed back his hearing until 12 July (12) after Internal Revenue Service agents filed new claims, alleging Grant actually owes upwards of $750,000 (£468,750).
He now has until 26 April (12) to surrender additional financial documents in a bid to solve the dispute.
If convicted, Grant faces up to three years behind bars, according to AllHipHop.com.
