DMX appeared in a Phoenix court room today (January 30), where he was sentenced to 90 days in prison.
The 38-year-old rapper, who is currently in the Maricopa, Arizona jail, appeared before a Maricopa, County judge in black and white pin stripes, looking noticeably heavier.
The judge sentenced DMX to three months in prison, after Maricopa County sheriffs deputies raided his Cave Creek, Arizona home last year on suspicion of animal abuse.
Investigators found several malnourished dogs, as well as the charred remains of three others.
Also recovered were guns, ammunition and drug paraphernalia.
He was also accused of felony theft, after he gave a fake name and social security numbers to workers treating him at a Scottsdale clinic last April.
As expected, several charges against the rapper were dropped in exchange for his plea of guilty.
The rapper must also serve 18 months supervised probation. The sentencing marks the end of almost a full year of warrants, raids and multiple arrests.
He was eventually apprehended December 9 in the Miami mansion of producer Scott Storch.
Since his incarceration, DMX has been reading the bible each day and is planning a religious themed television show to teach children a positive message.
