DMX Sentenced To Home Confinement After Testing Positive For Cocaine
DMX has lived a VERY tough life, so it’s not really surprising to hear that he’s still self-medicating after all these years.
That said, drugs are bad m’kay? They are also illegal, especially so for those who are on parole, probation or out on bail.
According to the NYDailyNews, Earl Simmons has tested positive MULTIPLE times for both cocaine and marijuana.
X’s judge, Jed Rakoff, said that he had violated the terms of his bail, “probably more times than I can even remember”.
Suffice to say, he wasn’t very happy when the rapper showed up late to his bail hearing today:
“He does have a rap sheet that does suggest more than a passing acquaintance with illegal drugs and more than a passing acquaintance with hand guns,” Rakoff said.
Rakoff then remanded DMX to home confinement with an electronic ankle monitor as opposed to sending his a$$ to the whoscow.
“I’m going to not detain him in jail, although a very strong argument could be made for detaining him in jail,” Rakoff said, adding that he believes too many people are locked up before trial.
Earl is lucky that he has a judge that appears to be lenient, merciful and a decent human. Swizz, The Lox, N.O.R.E, somebody needs to get him some real serious help.
