Beanie Sigel Sentencing Postponed
Rapper Beanie Sigel will have to wait an additional two months to be sentenced for failing to report income to the federal government. Sigel, born Dwight Grant, appeared in a Philadelphia court today (April 12), where his sentencing date was postponed. Sigel is accused of failing to report income to the federal government, from 2003-2005 and though the rapper claims he owes $350,000 to the IRS, the government says he owes an upwards of $750,000 in taxes.
Today, Sigel was given until April 26 to turn in financial documentation for the years in question and his legal team has to meet with IRS agents on Friday, June 15, to come to a final agreement on the owed amount.
Sigel faces up to a total of 36 months behind bars and will be sentenced Thursday, July 12 at 10:00am.
