The 30-year-old woman, whose real name is Kimberly Jones, dropped her bad-girl image in court Wednesday, admitting to lying to a grand jury and during her trial, the New York Times said.

"At the time I thought it was the right thing to do, but I now know it was wrong," she said.

She faced a maximum of 20 years in jail for the four perjury counts on which she was convicted March 17. Jones was found guilty of lying in her testimony before a grand jury about a shootout among rival rappers Feb. 25, 2001 in front of a Manhattan radio station.

There was no immediate decision on where Jones will serve her sentence, although the judge recommended she be sent to a prison not far from her home and family in the New York area. She was ordered to surrender Sept. 19.
