Chicago rapper and L’A Capone affiliate JB BinLaden was arrested on an active warrant just under a week ago. It is unclear how long he will serve inside, but online his charge is listed as ‘INDIRECT CRIMINAL CONTEMPT’.
In illinois ‘Indirect Criminal Contempt’ is a charge assigned for conduct which does not take place in front of a judge, but interferes with an ongoing criminal court case (e.g. witness tampering under instructions not to communicate).
It’s unclear what exactly JB Binladen did to be locked up on this charge, but since the maximum penalty is 180 days in jail and a $500 fine, it is likely he will not spend too long locked up. In Illinois, good time credit applied to reduce the overall sentence by 50%, so this 180 day maximum sentence could amount to just 90 days.
JB was arrested earlier this year for ‘criminal trespass to a residence’ and quickly bonded out afterwards. He is currently preparing for the release of his ‘Blood Brothaz 2’ collaborative mixtape alongside O-Block’s Prince Dre.
