DMX Violated Tax Evasion Bail, May Head To Jail
DMX just can’t get right. The Yonkers rapper violated the conditions of his bail for tax evasion by heading out of town and not telling his parole officer.
The rapper is out on bail in his tax evasion case, and one of the conditions was that he must give the judge a heads-up if he blows out of town. He left New York to see family in St. Louis, without telling hizzoner … and that could be a deal breaker.
DMX’s attorney, Murray Richman, tells TMZ … it seems like X just forgot, because he was preoccupied with the trip.
Richman says X usually notifies his probation officer if he’s leaving New York to perform, so this is unlike him. He’s guessing the judge will show a little mercy and just up the restrictions — like requiring an ankle bracelet — but Richman vows to fight it.
Dark Man X is due in court this week.
As much as X has been to jail, we hope they don’t roll with the “I forgot” defense. Just saying.
The troubled rap star has been charged with ducking almost $1M in taxes and faces up to 44 years in the bing if convicted.
