'Bone Thugs' Rapper Granted Probation

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony rapper Flesh-n-Bone was arrested back in January under suspicion of domestic violence. A fight with his wife allegedly turned violent and he was later charged with inflicting corporal injury on a spouse, threatening her, and false imprisonment.

But Bone, whose real name is Stanley Howse, struck a deal with prosecutors, so he actually won't face any additional jail time.

Hollyscoop has also learned that the alleged victim, Flesh's wife, who refused to testify in court against Flesh, is represented by high profile attorney Nareg Gourjian.

"In the face of a potential Three Strike sentence of 25 years to life, Flesh's powerhouse attorney Shepard Kopp was able to resolve the case without any jail time being required," Gourjian told Hollyscoop.

Flesh was sentenced to 3 years of probation and time served in jail. Flesh must also participate in a domestic violence program and donate $400 to a battered women's shelter.

Back in 2000, the rapper was sentenced to prison for threatening a man with an AK-47 assault rifle. He was released in 2008.
