Rapper Lil’ Kim to be released from federal prison

Published

on

Lil'Kim (born Kimberly Jones) will end her 366-day stretch in federal prison before the 4th of July holiday, on Monday July 3, 2006, said her attorney, James Leonard, Jr. The lyricist is set to leave the Federal Detention Center between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m., according to Leonard, Jr. Jones was convicted September 20 2006, on federal perjury and conspiracy charges for lying to a federal grand jury regarding knowledge of a 2001 shooting that occurred at Hot 97 FM, one of New York's hottest urban radio stations.

Although Jones will be released she still has to serve a month on house arrest at her New Jersey home after leaving the Center or an undiscovered New Jersey location for processing, stated Leonard, who added that Jones was a model prisoner and is thankful for the support she received from the letters of local fans and radio shout-outs.



There is nothing like having support, and this New York native has been a witness to that fact. Before entering prison, Lil' Kim received support across the broad from the hip-hop world and outside. The experience she has been through is one that will have a large affect on not just her life but others as well.

Jones' situation has been a wake up call for the hip-hop community and those outside who have faced with similar experiences. The rapper put her self on the line for what she believed in no matter the results. She lost the case in the view of the court, but in the eyes of the hip-hop community, she is a victor. The sort of dedication she showed is unheard of these days, most would have taken some sort of plea. Not this strong black woman, Lil' Kim went all the way and for that reason, she needs to be prized.
