Rapper Lil' Kim's perjury trial begins

UPI News Service, 03/01/2005 

The music of rapper Kimberly Jones, better known as Lil' Kim, plays a major role in her perjury trial in a 2001 shooting outside a New York radio station.

A federal judge Monday prohibited jurors from listening to Hot 97 or WQHT-FM, the radio station outside of which competing rap groups engaged in gunfire. Judge Gerard Lynch also barred jurors from buying Lil' Kim's music, the New York Times and Daily News reported.

However, prosecutors said Jones' recordings, among other evidence, prove she lied when she said did not know, did not see or did not recognize two men during the Feb. 25, 2001, dispute in which at least 20 shots were fired. The men, rap producer Suif Jackson and security provider Damion Butler, pleaded guilty earlier to weapons charges.

Jones, who is accused of perjury and obstruction of justice in the shooting that seriously injured rival rap associate Efrain Ocasio, could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted on the federal charges.
