DMX was granted early release from New York's Rikers Island jail after serving a month of what was supposed to be a 70-day sentence for a parole viola
Troubled rapper DMX should have learned from his mistake that he finally was granted an early release for good behavior at New York's Rikers Island jail where he was serving 70 days for parole violation. As for everybody to know, the star was sent to jail Nov. 19 last year, a month after found guilty to probation violation in a 2004 case.
He was pleaded guilty for running his sport utility vehicle through a fence at New York's Kennedy International Airport and then claimed to be an undercover federal agent. He violated his parole by twice getting caught driving on a suspended license. Though, "He got some time off, two-thirds, for good behavior and also accrued some credit for time spent previously in jail," a spokeswoman for the Queens District Attorney said Friday.
