Rapper Beanie Sigel headed to jail for tax evasion

Philly.com is reporting that rapper Beanie Sigel is headed prison to serve a 2-year term for tax evasion. According to the site Sigel took full responsibility for the unpaid taxes and told the judge he has had a hard time getting his career back on track since his 2004 conviction on federal gun and drug charges.

Beanie Sigel has a date with the slammer — again. A federal judge Thursday sentenced the South Philadelphia rapper to two years behind bars for failing to file tax returns for the years 2003 through 2005.

Sigel, whose real name is Dwight Grant, pleaded guilty to the charges in August 2011. U.S. District Judge Jan DuBois also imposed a year of supervised release after the sentence during which time Sigel is supposed to pay all back taxes, interest and penalties he owes.

DuBois gave Sigel, 38, who appeared for sentencing in a gray, short-sleeve polo shirt and baggy denim jeans, until Sept. 12 to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons.

IRS investigators found that Sigel did not file tax returns from 1999 through 2002, except for a $10,000 tax payment in 2001.
