Fat Joe Sentenced to Prison Time For Tax Evasion

In addition to the jail time, Joe will have to pay a $15,000 fine and serve one year of supervised release. And of course, he will have to pay the IRS all of the tax money he owes. He was accused of failing to pay $718,038. He will begin serving time on Aug. 26.
