Ja Rule Turns Himself In As Tearful Goodbye
Ja Rule appeared in a Manhattan courtroom a few moments ago and turned himself in to begin his two-year prison sentence on weapons possession charges. Moments after he was cuffed and led out of the courtroom, Rule shouted, “See y’all” to his family in the back of the courtroom. “We love you,” they called back, as some burst into tears and Rule replied, “I love y’all too,” before being escorted to detention.

Rule will spend up to two weeks at New York’s Rikers Island jail before being transferred to a different correctional facility upstate. Rule’s lawyer said she expected that with good behavior, the MC could be out in 18 to 20 months. The rapper is being jailed in connection with an arrest in July 2007 in which the Manhattan district attorney’s office claimed police found a loaded semi-automatic .40-caliber Taurus handgun, with the serial number scratched off, hidden in the backseat of the MC’s Maybach.
