Ja Rule released from prison, put on home confinement until July
At the time, Atkins was expected to be released July 28. But he is a free man much sooner, reports TMZ, as the rapper will now complete his sentence via home confinement.
Atkins' spokesperson, Melanie A. Bonvicino, says in a statement, "My client Jeffrey Atkins was released this morning from the Raybrook Correctional Facility in Upstate New York to serve out his federal time obligation due under the terms set forth in accordance with home confinement which were secured by his attorney Stacy Richman. At present, he looks forward to spending some time with his family while he completes his memoir."
Atkins will be under house arrest until the July 28 release date.
