R&B singer Lyfe Jennings has been sentenced to over three years behind bars due to a 2008 indictment.
Today, the R&B singer was sentenced to three and a half years behind bars in an Atlanta court for a 2008 indictment stemming from a confrontation with his ex-girlfriend and mother of his children that resulted in charges of DUI test refusal, criminal trespassing, discharging a weapon near a street, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and fleeing or attempting to elude a police offer.
Jennings also left a Twitter message to fans confirming his situation.
“This will be my last post” Jennings wrote yesterday on his Twitter. “To everyone who gave me a chance I am forever in your debt. I have had a fabulous career because of you. All I can say in parting is that I have been honest with [ya\’ll]. I didn’t sugarcoat a word didn’t hold back a single [syllable] of my life from [ya\’ll]. I’ve lived a hundred lives in these 6 yrs so I not only won’t,I don’t have the right to complain. I would like to think that I’ve changed lives by changing my own, tho[ugh] I can’t be sure. But one thing I am sure of is God gives and takes away in measure. He is fair, just and forever. Amen from a man… Smile, its contageous:)”
