Lil’ Kim Guilty Of Pejury

March 18th, 2005 // 1 Comment

“You would have to believe they were magic sunglasses that only block out your friends who were shooting people,” Assistant US Attorney Cathy Seibel told the jury.

She had told a federal grand jury that she did not witness two of her friends involved in the incident outside a radio station in Manhattan in 2001.The 30-year-old could face five-year jail terms after a New York jury found her guilty on three counts of perjury and one of conspiracy.Lil’ Kim, real name Kimberley Jones, had denied all the charges against her. She plans an appeal. The jury cleared her of obstructing justice, avoiding a potential 10-year jail term. [BBC]

If she had only wore one of her hoochy mama outfits, she could have distracted the jury into forgetting what they were deliberating about.

    Honorable Judge Gerard Lynch;

    We are not fans of Lil’ Kim, nor do we dislike her. We are simply citizens who feel celebrities should not receive any special treatment if they have been convicted of a crime. As they are in some respects role-models to their fans, a clear and strong message should be sent — no one is above the law, crimes beget punishment and people, no matter who they are, will be held responsible for their actions.
    To be clear, there is no reason why Lil’ Kim should receive any special treatment or leniency during the sentencing phase of this trial. Her life has not been exemplary, at no point has she tried to distinguish herself within the community (actually it seems she’s taken strides to the contrary). However, even if there had been an established pattern of uplifting behavior, the bottom line is that she tried to cover up an egregious act and then lied about it to the authorities. And while we wish her no ill will, we do feel a fitting punishment should be handed down.

    We will continue our petition more vocally as needed.

    Thank you for your time,

    Respectfully,
    A select and concerned group
