Rapper Lil’ Kim could face years in prison when she is sentenced in June for lying about a shootout outside a New York radio station.
Her convictions Thursday in federal court on three counts of perjury and one of conspiracy carry terms of up to five years in prison each, but as a first-time offender, she is expected to receive far less than 20 years. The Associated Press reports that any term would make her the first major female rapper to do time. That’s the AP for you, always looking on the bright side.
The 29-year-old performer, known for her raunchy raps and raunchier outfits, was acquitted of obstruction of justice.
