Bone Thugs-n-Harmony Rapper Beats Wife, Pleads Guilty
'Tha Crossroads' creator, born Stanley Howse, was initially charged with inflicting corporal injury on a spouse, threatening his wife and false imprisonment after a verbal altercation they had turned violent.
Howse and his attorney, Shepard Kopp were able to bypass the slammer by striking a deal with prosecutors. The MC agreed to plead guilty to the false imprisonment charge in exchange for dropping the first two charges.
As a result of his deal, he must also endure three years probation and time served in jail. He also must do 100 hours of community service, participate in a domestic violence program and donate $400 to a battered women's shelter.
"Flesh has always maintained his innocence of these charges, but it was best for his family and Bone Thugs to put this case behind him," Kopp told the tabloid website.
Flesh-n-Bone has a history of legal troubles stemming back to 1998, when police reportedly caught him with a loaded sawed-off shotgun at a relative's home.
