Rapper Ja Rule is facing up to three years in prison after pleading guilty to $3 million worth of federal tax evasion in New Jersey.
Just two weeks ago, Ja Rule was sentenced to 2-years in prison on gun charges.
Ja Rule’s attorney, Stacy Richman, is expected to file to have the tax evasion sentence served concurrently with the weapons sentence.
Richman says Ja Rule surrendered voluntarily and will pay the delinquent taxes.
“He’s been working on addressing these issues for some time, and he’s taking full responsibility,” she said.
Ja Rule is scheduled back in court on June 13, 2011 for his sentencing on the three tax evasion charges. He faces up to one year in prison and $100,000 in fines on each count.
