Rapper Beanie Sigel appeared in Federal court Tuesday where he pleaded guilty to owing almost $350,000 in back taxes. Now, he could face up to three years in prison for income tax evasion.

 

Sigel was originally accused of failing to report over $1,000,000 and failing to pay taxes from 2003 to 2005 when he was signed under Roc-A-Fella Records.

 

Sigel will be sentenced November 18, but his lawyer, Fortunato Perri Jr., will challenge the amount the goverment says his client owes.
