It is nearly two years rapper born Jeffrey Atkins aka Ja Rule, had been locked up at the Mid-State Correctional Facility in New York stemming from a gun conviction, he has completed his jail term on Feb 21 only to be sent back to another facility where he will serve the final four months of his 28-month sentence on a tax evasion charge.
Ja Rule was found with a loaded semi-automatic .40-caliber Taurus handgun, with the serial number scratched off, hidden in the backseat of the MC's Maybach in 2011 and was sentenced to serve term over gun charges for 28 months. He is finally free from the charges but maybe back to jail to serve another four to six months for federal tax evasion. This time, it will be in a friendlier facility unlike the Mid-State Correctional Facility in New York .
Even though he has completed his state sentence, but the state and federal sentences were running concurrently and there is an overage on the federal one, "He still owes time on the federal charge." Ja Rule's lawyer, Stacey Richman told MTV News and she does not know where he would spend the last months of his sentence.
"It could be in a halfway house or another federal facility or a camp," said Richman, who noted that Rule still has to pay back $1.1 million in taxes once he is released. "I wrote to them [federal authorities] and gave them a list of issues ... We tried to plan for this by filing paperwork months ago ... But this is not s surprise to anyone. Everyone was expecting this."
This is better than being in the Correctional facility. We hope he gets out of all these soon and reunite with his family.
