DMX Sentenced To Another Year In Prison

After yet another parole violation, the tough times continue, as DMX will return to prison.

After being arrested in November for a parole violation, DMX was sentenced to a year in prison. After a November 19 concert in Scottsdale, Arizona, X was reportedly cited for use of Oxycontin without a prescription, failing to submit to a drug test, failing to participate in counseling programs, failure to make payments and driving on a suspended license. Prior to the arrest, DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, had been on parole for a previous assault charge.

DMX had already served two prison terms in 2010, and this will make the second consecutive year he has spent significant time behind bars. The former platinum-selling emcee has been arrested five times since August of 2007.

Various reports quote Vincent Funari, a spokesman for the Maricopa County Superior Court, as saying DMX admitted to the terms of his probation. DMX will also receive 113 days of prison time already served.
