DMX Violates Bail Bond on Tax Evasion Case

August 9, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

DMX has violated his bail bond over the case regarding his tax evasion. TMZ reports that the rapper, who is charged with fourteen counts of tax evasion, left New York in order to travel to St. Louis but did not inform the judge in his case.

DMX’s attorney told TMZ that his client forgot, being preoccupied with the trip. He noted that DMX usually tells his probation officer if he’s leaving New York for performance purposes, so this is not normal behavior for him. His lawyer believes the judge will simply up the restrictions, such as requiring an ankle bracelet, though he will try to oppose it.

A US attorney spokesman said that the rapper is set to appear in court later this week. DMX faces up to forty-four years in federal prison on the charges if convicted.
