The World Continues To See The Trend of Famous Artists Serving Time In Prison

The world’s history is not short of artists who have served extended periods of time in prison as well as minor sentences. Although being accused of a small offense does not raise concern, when a popular artist is imprisoned or sentenced for many years, the public grows attentive. So, regardless of the particular state that an inmate is imprisoned in like the Louisville metro police jail, the general population wishes to know more about the situation. Here are some of the most famous ones that you might have heard about already.


He was an american rapper and actor who was imprisoned for up to 4.5 years for sexual assault. However, he had only served 11 months before he was released from jail. Just a year later, 2Pac was shot dead. As a result, the case was never pursued in courts.

Lindsay Lohan

Lohan is still considered one of the most popular actresses and pop singers. As disappointing as it may sound, she was sentenced to 2 months of prison for stealing jewelry at a store. However, she was able to convert the prison sentence into home arrest instead which she served for 35 days only.

Lil Kim

Lil Kim also served 1 year in prison as well as an additional 30 days in house arrest after she was found involved in conspiracy and perjury to a friend’s shooting trial. The rapper and actress had to face a huge blow to their career past this situation.

Charles Manson

The American songwriter had earned quite a fame before he was sentenced to death in 1971. The reason for this was listed as multiple murders and conspiracy. He was also found to be involved in cult leadership. The state of California later on, suspended the death penalty on Charles Manson but he had to serve 9 concurrent life sentences.

Filthy Phil

Filthy Phil was another American rapper who was known for his recorded and released album “The Manhunt”. The interesting part was that he did that while on the run from the FBI. It is not clearly known what happened to his conviction, but he was never released from the the customer and therefore, majority of the people believe that he has been convicted for his crimes.

Gary Glitter

He was a rock singer and showman before being sentenced to 9 months of prison due to being involved in child pornography. On top of that, he had to face 3 years in prison in 2006 for sexual abuse of a child. According to some reports, he is still imprisoned with 16 year sentence for multiple attempts of rape of minors.
