An arrest warrant for Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony was reportedly issued Wednesday (Feb. 24) after the rapper failed to appear at a scheduled plea hearing in Butler County, Ohio.
Krayzie Bone, born Anthony Henderson, has been battling charges of child support non-payment in Ohio for the last three years.
During a scheduled plea hearing in Butler County Common Pleas Court, Henderson, 31, would have received probation providing that he maintained steady child support payments for his 6-year-old son, according to Ohio's Journal News.
Henderson's nonattendance, however, carries a punishment of up to 18 months in prison. Assistant Prosecutor Aaron Aldridge requested a warrant for the rapper's arrest.
Henderson was indicted last August on two counts of the fifth-degree felony, nonsupport of dependents, which carries a 12-month prison sentence. At the time, prosecutors issued a warrant for Henderson's arrest for failing to appear in court to face the charges.
The rapper reportedly placed $40,000 in an escrow account for the mother of his son. The money was released to the mother after paternity tests verified that Henderson was the father of the child. Henderson had disputed paternity.
After the Butler County Child Support Enforcement Agency passed the rapper's case on to the prosecutor's office in 2002, Henderson paid a lump sum of $35,000, and the case was dropped before it was presented before a grand jury.
Henderson's failure to continue payments between 2002 and 2004 reportedly led to the August 2004 indictment.
Krayzie Bone's third solo album titled Gemini: Good vs. Evil was released earlier this month.
