Lil'Kim is starting a year in jail as her sentence for perjuring herself in front of a grand jury to protect her friends. Or people who she claimed she barely knew, actually. Her plea for leniency was a little weak, as having spent the whole of her perjury trial denying perjury, she suddenly went "oh, yes, I did do it - but I thought that lying under oath was the right thing to do":

"I testified falsely to the grand jury and during the trial. At the time I thought it was the right thing to do. Now I know it was wrong."

There's something almost biblical about the punishment being handed out for denying those who were fighting for you, don't you think?
