Beanie Sigel was sentenced to a year in prison stemming form an April 20th incident for which he was given a year in prison, 2 years probation and pay a $25,000. Sigel was accused of leading the police on a high speed chase which led to a foot pursuit. The rapper tossed a stolen .45 semiautomatic pistol loaded with nine rounds and a search of his SUV turned up a variety of drugs.

Beanie Sigel wrote a letter asking for the mercy of the judge with respect to his mandatory sentence. I had let myself get caught up in something, Sigel said, referring to an addiction to drugs (which includes marijuana, Percocet and Zanex).

He still awaits trial for allegedly shooting a man in the stomach outside a Philadelphia bar and for allegedly punching a 53-year-old man in his face. This will be the second trial for the shooting with the first ending in a hung jury.
