Slick Rick Pardoned by New York Governor

May 27, 2008 7:35 PM | Slick Rick | Comments (0)

Slick Rick (A.K.A. Ricky Walters) has been fully pardoned by New York Governor David Paterson.  Back in 1991 the rapper was convicted of attempted murder and spent five years in prison.  However, the 43 year old rapper had faced numerous attempts to deport him although he lived in the U.S. since he was a child.  Slick Rick was again arrested in 2002 by Immigration agents who stopped him after he returned to Miami from a 1 week Caribbean cruise where he performed on-board. He spent 17 months in jail which stemmed from a 1997 Immigration and Naturalization Service warrant that was not been pursued earlier.
