Uncle Sam Always Watchin!: Fat Joe Sentenced To 4 Months In Jail For Tax Evasion

It might be the accountants and the lawyers to blame for tax issues, but it's always the celebrity that ends up going down. Fat Joe was just sentenced to four months in prison for stiffing the government more than $1 million in taxes.

Joe pled guilty back in December, admitting he failed to pay a large amount of taxes for the years 2007 and 2008. He was originally facing a much harsher penalty of two years in prison, but got off with four months, a $15,000 fine, and one-year supervised release.

If Joe is looking on the bright side, at least he gets to enjoy the rest of the summer. The court ordered him to report to jail by August 26.
