Dmx Jailed For 90 Days

Troubled rapper DMX has been sentenced to three months behind bars for theft, drug possession and animal cruelty. The 38-year-old - real name Earl Simmons - was arrested in Miami, Florida on 9 December (08) after missing a court appearance in Phoenix, Arizona.
He was sent to jail in Maricopa County, Arizona, where he pleaded guilty on 30 December to felony counts of theft, possession of marijuana and possession or use of narcotics, and one misdemeanour count of animal cruelty.
According to local reports, after entering the courthouse for his sentencing on Friday (30Jan09) Simmons complained of pain in his feet and knees, claiming he was suffering gout.
Handing down the sentence, Maricopa County Superior Court Commissioner Phemonia Miller told the star, "I don't know DMX. Mr. Simmons, it's time you do something different. What you have been doing is not working."
The rapper will be allowed to serve his sentence in Florida, as requested by his defence team, but will not be given credit for time served, and will not be released until April (09) - whereupon he will must spend least 18 months' under supervised probation.
DMX's charges all stem from a raid on his Phoenix home in August 2007. Cops found three dead dogs and evidence of animal abuse as well as a collection of guns, ammunition and drug paraphernalia.
