A Manhattan judge allowed Ja Rule to finish his new album and settle some tax issues before he begin his prison sentence. Earlier today Wednesday (March 9) Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Richard Carruthers scheduled the Queens native to begin his two years prison sentence on June 8.
Last December Ja Rule accepted a plea bargain and was sentenced to two years in prison for possession of a weapon, stemming from a 2007 arrest. Ja Rule’s attorney, Stacey Richman said that Ja want to finish his album and settle his tax issues before he go to jail.
“We want to finish the album, and there’s also a tax issue,” Richman told the New York Post. “Somebody, an accountant, had filed an incorrect form, and this is to correct what was done in the past.”
