Rapper ‘Fat Joe’ Goes to Prison for Tax Evasion

by Joseph M. Donegan on September 4, 2013

Rapper Joseph Cartagena, better known as "Fat Joe," has voluntarily reported to federal prison in Florida to serve a four-month sentence for tax evasion.

Cartagena, who was charged with tax law violations in New Jersey, pleaded guilty in December 2012 to failing to pay taxes on more than $1 million of income in 2007 and 2008. The platinumselling artist faced charges in New Jersey because many of the companies he earned income from are incorporated in the state. Initially facing up to two years in prison for his crimes, he received a four-month sentence and will also face an additional year of supervised release after completing his prison sentence. Cartagena will also be required to pay a $15,000 fine for his crimes.
