Tax Fraud: DMX Could Go To Jail For Leaving New York Without Notifying The Court
DMX went to visit his family and he could go to jail as a result. The rapper is out on bail in his tax evasion case, and one of the conditions was that he must give the judge a heads-up if he blows out of town. He left New York to see family in St. Louis, without telling hizzoner ... and that could be a deal breaker.
DMX's attorney, Murray Richman, tells TMZ it seems like X just forgot, because he was preoccupied with the trip.
Richman says X usually notifies his probation officer if he's leaving New York to perform, so this is unlike him. He's guessing the judge will show a little mercy and just up the restrictions, but whatever the case, Richman vows to fight it.
Nicholas Biase, a spokesman for the US attorney for the southern district of NY, says X is set to appear in court later this week.
Recall DMX is facing 14 counts of evading more than $1 mil in federal taxes.
