RAPPER SERIOUS JONES GETS 3 YEARS FOR HUMAN trafficking
Battle rapper Serius Jones, real name Saleem Bligen, was sentenced to three years in prison after taking a plea deal to settle his pimping and human trafficking case in Contra Costa County, California.
Jones pleaded guilty to various charges, including pimping, assault, and dissuading a witness, which is a strike offense in California. The human trafficking charges were dropped, and Jones was ordered to pay $6,000 in restitution. He was also hit with a 10-year stay away order from the woman identifying him as her pimp.
