366 Days for "God-fearing good person"
Lil' Kim said "At the time, I thought it was the right thing to do, but I now know it was wrong. I have worked hard my entire life for everything I have, everything I have accomplished. I ask you to consider my entire life's work and not just the days in the grand jury and on the witness stand in the courtroom. I'm a God-fearing good person." In hearing this, U.S. District Judge Gerard Lynch came to his another consideration.
Taking into account the public perception of sending a young black entertainer to prison far longer than Martha Stewart, Lynch believed the rapper deserved more time for she had lied about a violent crime, not a white-collar scheme. Hence, as the final decision Kim only sentenced to a one year and one day in prison for perjury and conspiracy, and fined $50,000 for her March conviction of lying to a federal grand jury about a 2001 shootout involving members of her entourage outside a New York City radio station.
