Flint, Michigan’s MC Breed has been sentenced to serve a year in state prison for failure to pay over $200,000 in child support.
On Thursday (May 11), Genesee Circuit Court Judge Richard Yullie ordered 34-year-old MC Breed, whose real name is Eric T. Breed, to prison for violating his probation in lacking to make payments for child support.
Breed pleaded with the Court, saying that he is broke.
“I’m in so much debt right now that it makes my head spin every time I think about it,” Breed said.
The judge however, showed no mercy for Breed’s plea of being broke claiming that records show that his case dragged on for an extensive amount of time.
Yullie also noted that Breed had previously pleaded guilty in the fall of 1999 to attempted no support.
“Someone looking at this file would ask me why did I give Mr. Breed so many opportunities?… You have not met your obligations you have in respect to supporting these children.”
Before being sentenced by Judge Yullie, Breed faced another judge for a separate child support case.
Genesee Circuit Judge Archie Hayman also sentenced Breed to serve a year in confinement in the county jail, with the provision that he can participate in the work release program if he could find a job.
But Judge Yullie’s judgment to a year in prison without the work release program supercedes Judge Hayman’s ruling.
Before Judge Yullie rendered a judgment, Breed apologized for all of his “inconsistencies” and said that he’d given up on his pursuits of the rap game.
Additionally, the rapper also had outstanding warrants in the Detroit area for failing to a pay speeding ticket and operating a vehicle with a suspended license.
But these extra penalties were waived since he was heading to prison.
