Keyshia Cole Facing 30-Day Jail Sentence

Keyshia Cole Facing 30-Day Jail Sentence

September arrest unearths 10-year-old warrant.

Published December 12, 2014

A 10-year-old warrant could land Keyshia Cole in jail for 30 days. The singer is facing a month behind bars stemming from an old DUI arrest. Cole announced the news herself during a (deleted) Twitter chat with her fans yesterday. 

She can thank her most recent bust for bringing up the old warrant and triggering the new sentence. 

In 2002, Cole was convicted of DUI and ordered to take an alcohol education course. A warrant was issued two years later because she never produced documents to show that the classes were completed.

Cops found the warrant when Cole was arrested for attacking a woman at Birdman’s house in September.

Luckily, Cole landed at least a small victory in all the legal drama. The judge agreed to cut her a break if she hands over proof that the courses were completed.

 A hearing has been scheduled for February.
