DMX Violated Tax Evasion Bail, May Head To Jail

DMX Violated Tax Evasion Bail, May Head To Jail”

Rapper DMX, accused of cheating the IRS out of $1.7 million in taxes, could be headed back to prison for violating the conditions of his bail.

Since he's reportedly violated the terms of his previous release from jail, DMX, 46, could be facing some time behind bars.

"The Court has received a report from pretrial services indicating that the defendant may have violated the terms of his pretrial release in numerous respects", Judge Rakoff said in an order docketed Wednesday afternoon.

The rapper was now out on bail in his tax evasion case and recently visited family in St. Louis without telling the judge.

DMX's lawyer Murray Richman says that the issue mainly stems from a recent trip out of town to visit members of his family. He's guessing the judge will show a little mercy and just up the restrictions - like requiring an ankle bracelet - but Richman vows to fight it.

Judge Rakoff has requested the rapper to appear in court this Friday to address the possible violation.

The troubled rap star has been charged with ducking nearly $1M in taxes and faces up to 44 years in the bing if convicted.
