FLESH-N-BONE GETS 11-YEARS
FOR MESSING WITH GUNS

Weapons and Assault Charges Equal
More Than A Decade In the Pokey
According to sources at MTV, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's Flesh-N-Bone (real name: Stanley Howse) was sentenced today to 11 years in prison for threatening a "friend" with an AK-47 in December of last year. The sentence is in connection with Flesh's conviction last June of assault with a deadly weapon and criminal possession of a firearm by a felon. As if that wasn't enough, the rapper will serve out the term concurrently with another conviction for possession of a dangerous weapon. That particular incident happened in January, when LAPD officers saw Flesh waving a sawed-off shotgun at a relative's home. So much for friends and family.

Gary Ballen, Flesh's manager, said the rapper's camp was "pleased" with the outcome. The rapper could've been facing up to 19 years in prison, but the sentence was instead 10 years at 50% plus time served, which means Stanley will only serve approximately five years.

Stated Jonathan Kissell, Flesh's attorney: "While this may appear to be a lengthy sentence, it will not serve as a life sentence. Stanley will continue to write music, to interact with people in the music industry and use his creatively for others' enjoyment. He will be back in society's grasp within five years and will have learned a very valuable lesson in life."

The judge even recommended the rapper serve his sentence in a facility that specializes in caring for inmates with addiction problems, where "Stanley can receive counseling."
