Remy Ma Gets Eight-year Prison Sentence For Shooting

Rapper REMY MA has been sentenced to eight years in prison for shooting a woman outside of a New York nightclub last year (07).
The 26-year-old hip-hop star - real name Reminisce Smith - was convicted in March (08) of assault, weapons possession and attempted coercion for shooting Makeda Barnes Joseph in the abdomen, and has been awaiting sentencing at Rikers Island prison in New York.
Smith, who faced up to 25 years behind bars, wept as her sentence was read.
Her lawyers maintain the shooting was an "accident" and are planning to appeal the verdict.
The sentence follows a cancelled prison wedding ceremony on Tuesday (13May08) with her long-term partner, rapper Papoose - real name Shamele MACkie. According to reports, MACkie tried to smuggle in a handcuff key to break his bride free and was told he couldn't return to visit the star for another six months.
