DMX Sentenced To One Year In Prison

Rapper DMX has been sentenced to a year in prison after his recent arrest for violating terms of his probation, a court spokesman said Thursday.

Investigators arrested Simmons recently in Maricopa County, Arizona, on one count of violating his probation.

The rapper was allegedly using drugs, including cocaine and OxyContin, the latter without a prescription.

He has been sentenced to a year in prison -- but with credit for 113 days served, said Vincent Funari, a spokesman for the Maricopa County Superior Court. He admitted violating terms of his probation, Funari said.
