QUICK TAKES

Rapper's probation 18 months longer

January 10, 2008|From the Associated Press

Rap star Beanie Sigel was found guilty in Philadelphia on Wednesday of a second probation violation for taking a trip to Atlantic City, N.J., and for being in contact with a convicted felon.

U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick ordered Sigel to serve one day in federal prison and extended his probation -- which was slated to end next month -- by 18 months.

The first six months are to be served in a halfway house, meaning that the 33-year-old rapper (real name: Dwight Grant) will be unable to travel to promote his latest album, "The Solution."
