Shyne, better known to the government as Jamal Barrow, will reportedly head back to court today (August 4th) for a parole hearing that was "overlooked" at his oritinal sentencing. Shyne's lawyer Oscar Michelen explained why the rapper faces an extention to his ten-years behind bars. "What happened was when they sentenced him [in March of 2001] they didn't sentence him to any parole post release supervision, which was mandatory."
Michelen continued "So the Correction Department has asked the court to re-sentence him under the law they can do that…The judge will decide whether to give him the maximum parole, which is five years, or the minimum parole, which is two-and-a-half years. Shyne will automatically have to do at least a year-and-a-half, which is how much of [the] 10 year [sentence remains] [Shyne] still owes the balance to the 10. But, [the district attorney] also [has] been looking to add to that [time] as well"
