August 11, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

DMX avoided jail over bail bond violations, but was still sentenced to house arrest. TMZ reports that the judge in the rapper’s tax evasion case sentenced him to wear an ankle bracelet requiring that he stay inside his home.

DMX is facing fourteen counts of tax evasion and was out on bail, but violated the conditions of that bail by leaving the state without court permission. The site reports that he didn’t help his case after he arrived thirty minutes late to the hearing. During the hearing, the judge noted that the rapper had also failed four drug tests for marijuana and cocaine.

While the judge could have thrown DMX in jail, he decided to go with house arrest instead. Per the site, the judge told X that he couldn’t even go out to mow his own lawn.
