Default Royce Da 5'9 in prison

Rapper Ryan 'Royce Da 5'9' Montgomery has been sentenced to serve one year in jail for violating his probation, stemming from a driving under the influence charge.

Sources close to Royce told AllHipHop.com that the rapper was arrested and charged with DUI over the summer, in Oakland County, MI, the Detroit suburb where the rapper resides.

"The actual situation was the DUI, but because he lives in the suburbs, you know how that goes," a source close to Royce told AllHipHop.com. "The probation people recommended that he do 30 days, but the judge was like "no." Normally the judge takes the probation people's recommendations, but they sentenced him to a year because they wanted him to think about it."

Royce, who is CEO of M.I.C. Records, was planning to release The Movement Mixtape with Detroit's DJ Butter and he was also working on a new album with DJ Premiere.

According to sources, Royce may still have the option to appeal the sentence, which his immediate associates believe was harsh.

"He may be able to appeal it," the source said. "I think they are really making examples out of people. He didn't even blow that much over. It wasn't like he was drunk and he hit someone - he was driving home at 4 in the morning. It's never like this in the city of Detroit, or in Wayne County."

Representatives for the rapper are asking fans to support the rapper, who leaves behind a family. Free Royce t-shirts are currently being made for supporters.

Fans of Royce can write him in prison:
