Beanie Sigel sentenced to 6 to 23 months after guilty plea to Philadelphia-area drug charge

MEDIA, Pa. - Rapper Beanie Sigel has been sentenced to six to 23 months in prison after pleading guilty to a narcotics possession charge in a Philadelphia suburb.

The Delaware County Daily Times (http://bit.ly/169dIDU ) says Sigel, whose real name is Dwight Grant, entered the plea Wednesday to a misdemeanour count of illegal possession of Percocet, a painkiller.

Sigel has been behind bars since he was arrested Aug. 29 in Tinicum Township. A co-defendant entered a plea to a firearms charge.

Defence attorney Carson Morris called his client a successful entertainer who had made some mistakes, but said "he's ready to go ahead and put that behind him and move on with is life."

Sigel is also facing a two-year federal tax evasion sentence, which Morris said he hoped would run concurrently.
