Rapper Flesh-N-Bone was sentenced in late December after striking a plea bargain on domestic abuse charges. The rapper, whose real name is Stanley Howse, was arrested one year ago in January of 2011 on suspicion of domestic violence when an argument with his wife is said to have gotten physically violent. Howse was officially charged with inflicting bodily injury on a spouse, criminally threatening her and false imprisonment. The rapper spent an unspecified amount of time in jail, then struck a deal with prosecutors in which he pleaded guilty to false imprisonment in exchange for the charges of inflicting bodily injury and criminal threats being dropped. Howse's sentenced was amended to time already served in jail, three years of probation and serving 100 hours of community service. In addition, Howse must also donate $400 to a battered women's shelter and participate in a domestic violence program. Howse always maintained that he was innocent of the charges against him, but he agreed to plead guilty to certain charges in order to gain his freedom and move on with his life. Howse has been part of the rap group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony since the mid-1990s, as well as releasing three solo albums. Howse has a long history of legal troubles and criminal arrests, including several weapons possessions charges and parole violations.
