The Truth: Rapper Beanie Sigel sentenced to prison for tax evasion

The rapper Beanie Sigel was sentenced on July 12th to 24 months in prison for failing to pay taxes for three years on more than $1 million of income.

U.S. District Judge Jan E. Dubois ordered the Philadelphia native to report to prison Sept. 12.
From 2003 through 2005, Sigel, 38, failed to pay more than $348,000 in taxes, prosecutors said.

Sigel pleaded guilty in August to failing to file federal income-tax returns for that period.

Prosecutors said he also failed to file tax returns from 1999 through 2002, during which time he failed to pay $380,459 in taxes.
