Sean Combs - G. Dep Sentenced To 15 Years Behind Bars

Sean Combs' former protege G. Dep has been sentenced to 15 years behind bars following his recent murder conviction.
The rapper, real name Trevell Coleman, turned himself in to police in 2010 and confessed to shooting 17-year-old John Henkel during a botched robbery in New York in 1993 in a bid to clear his conscience.
He later pleaded not guilty, claiming he had been under the influence of drugs at the time of his admission and that cops had mistakenly matched him to the killing.
However, he was convicted of the crime last month (17Apr12) and was sentenced on Tuesday (08May12).
Delivering the punishment, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus said, "The circumstance of your being before the court now suggests to me a maturity and decency that wouldn't have been evident at the time (of the crime). It (confessing) was the right thing to do, even though it landed you in the position you find yourself in now."
And the star's lawyer, Anthony Ricco, couldn't be more proud of his client for taking responsibility for his actions.
Ricco tells the New York Post, "My hope is that Trevell never wavers from his decision. Fifteen years is a long time. Fifteen years in the penitentiary for putting yourself there is an even longer time."
