DMX Faces Sentencing With Support From Jayson Williams, Meanwhile Lawyers Plan Surprise Tactic

DMX faces 5 year sentencing


This week DMX will make his plea for leniency in his tax evasion case. The judge will make his sentencing this week and DMX may be facing 5 years in jail.


One of the things his lawyers are bringing to defend X is that former NBA star and Jayson Williams has offered to help DMX though his faith based Rebound Institute Clinic. Since his release from prison for DWI and aggravated assault, Williams has been helping athletes overcome drug addiction through his facility.


Another tool the lawyers will pull out is that they plan to play DMX’s music during the sentencing.  Attorney Murray Richman said he hopes that the judge will “understand him genuinely in his voice.” Richman explains that DMX may be too emotional to speak. “It is raw Earl,” he says. “We are not here or desirous of molding him into what some may want to see; Earl is uniquely him and that is both his beauty of mind and his genius.”


Do you think the judge listening to “Slippin” and “The Convo” will help DMX from facing 5 years for $1.7 million in unpaid taxes?
