Things continue to get bad for Ja Rule as he was sentenced earlier today to 28 months in prison for failing to file income tax returns. This will run concurrent to his current two year bid for weapons possession charges. As a part of his guilty plea deal which occurred back in March, he’ll be paying the government $1.1 million in overdue taxes. During his hearing appearance this afternoon Ja apologized to the judge and has these words.

“I was a young man who made a lot of money, didn’t have the best people guiding me. I made mistakes. Things fell on hard times for me, things kind of spun out of control.”
