And here I thought perjury was okay in the post-Clinton era:
Grammy-winning rapper Lil’ Kim was sentenced Wednesday to a year and a day in prison and fined $50,000 for lying to a federal grand jury to protect friends involved in a 2001 shootout outside a Manhattan radio station.
While many rappers have served time in prison, Lil’ Kim is the first big-name female to do so.
Lil’ Kim (real name: Kimberly Jones) could have gotten up to 20 years – five years each on three counts of perjury and one count of conspiracy – at her sentencing before U.S. District Judge Gerard Lynch. She was convicted of the charges in March.
