Black Rob Sentenced To Seven Years In Prison

Rapper Black Rob was

sentenced to seven years in prison Thursday (March 30) after being convicted of

grand larceny for robbing a hotel room in 2004.

The rapper pleaded

guilty to criminal possession of stolen property in November 2005, after hotel

security cameras caught him leaving a New York hotel with a woman’s pocketbook

in November 2004.

He was charged

with stealing over $6,000 in jewelry and $300 cash from the woman’s room.

Black Rob, born

Robert Ross, was charged with burglary and criminal possession of stolen property

and was subsequently sentenced to serve two to six years in jail.

He was free on

bail, but a fugitive warrant was issued for his arrest when he failed to show

up to serve his time as arranged.

A fugitive warrant

was issued and the rapper was arrested in February 2006 in New Jersey.

Prosecutors gave

Black Rob the maximum sentence because he failed to turn himself in.

The rapper released

his sophomore LP, The Black Rob Report in 2005.
