In court the rapper admitted he had broken the law. “I wasn’t following the rules,” he said.

If DMX was charged on every count he was originally charged with he could have faced up to 40 years behind bars. The prosecutors sought five years, while DMX’s lawyer argued that a lesser sentence would allow the rapper more opportunities to provide for his 15 children and pay off his massive tax bill.
