Perjury trial prosecutor casts Lil' Kim as arrogant and privileged

UPI News Service, 03/16/2005 

New York jurors deliberated Wednesday in the conspiracy, obstruction of justice and perjury trial of hip-hop idol Lil' Kim, E! Online reported.

Kimberly Jones, her real name, is charged along with her personal assistant in a 2001 shooting outside a New York rap radio station that began when her entourage ran into another rap crew. There were no fatalities, but one person was seriously injured.

Jones' legal troubles stemmed from her allegedly lying to investigators about who was at the scene. Also, two members of her crew turned state's evidence.

"Maybe she believed she was a Queen Bee, above the law, that for a multifaceted superstar, the rules were different for her," said Manhattan Assistant U.S. Attorney Cathy Seibel. Jones' lawyer called the prosecution's case "asinine."

If convicted on all counts, Jones faces 30 years in prison.

Among her better known hits are "Magic Stick."
