Da Brat Sentenced to Three Years in Jail

Da Brat was sentenced to three years in prison Friday for striking a woman with a rum bottle at an Atlanta nightclub in 2007.

A DeKalb County judge also sentenced the Funkdafied rapper, whose real name is Shawntae Harris, to seven years probation and 200 hours of community service.

The incident happened last year at a Halloween party. The victim, a waitress at Studio 72 nightclub, had to be hospitalized after being struck by Harris.

“I love y’all,” Harris told members of her weeping family as she left the courtroom.
