She could get 20 years but will probably “only” do 5 years for lying about a shoot-out. The people who actually fired the guns got 10-12 years. Something seems seriously out out of kilter, you ask me.
Like Martha Stewart,she went down for lying, not for the actual event. The Village Voice says “Big Verdict: Lil’ Kim is seriously fucked. Girl, what were you thinking?”
Bcause, y’see she said in court she never knew the guy, and he was her manager…
Best thing, say nothing, Then they can’t get you for perjury. The National Lawyers Guild has an excellent pdf, Know Your Rights, that explains what to do when FBI, DHS, police, or Immigration want to ask you questions.
Do I have to answer questions if I have been arrested?
A:No. If you are arrested, you do not have to answer any questions. Ask for a lawyer right away. Repeat this request to every officer who tries to talk to or question you. You should always talk to a lawyer before you decide to answer any questions.
Q: What if the police or agents stop me on the street?
A:Ask if you are free to go. If the answer is yes, consider just walking away. If the police say you are not under arrest, but are not free to go, then you are being detained.
Whether or not youâ€™re a citizen, you have rights under the United States Constitution. The Fifth Amendment gives every person the right to remain silent: not to answer questions asked by a police officer or government agent. The Fourth Amendment restricts the governmentâ€™s power to enter and search your home or workplace, although there are many exceptions and new laws have expanded the governmentâ€™s power to conduct surveillance. The First Amendment protects your right to speak freely and to advocate for social change. However, if you are a non-citizen and are deportable, DHS can target you based on your political activities.
