DMX Pleads Guilty

DMX pleaded guilty August 27 on a Miami drug case for attempted marijuana and cocaine possession and is now in custody, waiting for Arizona authorities to pick him up on drug and animal cruelty charges there.

He was sentenced in Miami to time served.

The lawyer for the 37-year-old rapper and actor, whose real name is Earl Simmons, said DMX was denied bail because of the outstanding Arizona warrant and if he hadn’t pled guilty, he would have been stuck in Miami jail until an October trial date.
