Rapper Beanie Sigel Faces Criminal Charges for Tax Fraud


Federal prosecutors in Philadelphia allege the hip-hop star failed to fill in tax returns during 2002 to 2004.

Rapper Beanie Sigel is facing criminal charges for alleged tax fraud in his native Pennsylvania. Federal prosecutors in Philadelphia allege the hip-hop star, real name Dwight Grant, made $1.5 million from 2002 to 2004, but failed to fill in tax returns, according to court documents filed on Tuesday, October 5.

Defence lawyer Fortunato Perri Jr. claims Sigel was behind bars during some of the years in question, and had others handling his finances, reports the Associated Press. Sigel previously served jail time for drug and weapons charges. He was also locked up in 2008 for violating the terms of his probation.

But he has also led anti-violence rallies in his hometown and spoken to high school students about life choices.
