Recording artist Lyfe Jennings, is the latest celebrity set to do jail time. Jennings’ was indicted back in 2008, but his past finally came back to haunt yesterday when he was sentenced to  a 3 1/2 jail term in an Atlanta court.

In 2008, Jennings was charged with discharging a weapon near an open street, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, fleeing the scene,  DUI test refusal, and trespassing. These charges came after the recording artist got into a fiery argument with an ex-girlfriend.

After learning his fate, Jennings took to Twitter to address his fans and followers one lst time.  Read what he said below:

“This will be my last post” Jennings wrote yesterday on his Twitter. “To everyone who gave me a chance I am forever in your debt. I have had a fabulous career because of you. All I can say in parting is that I have been honest with [ya\’ll]. I didn’t sugarcoat a word didn’t hold back a single [syllable] of my life from [ya\’ll]. I’ve lived a hundred lives in these 6 yrs so I not only won’t,I don’t have the right to complain. I would like to think that I’ve changed lives by changing my own, tho[ugh] I can’t be sure. But one thing I am sure of is God gives and takes away in measure. He is fair, just and forever. Amen from a man… Smile, its contageous

No date has been confirmed as to when Jennings will begin serving his time.
