Rapper Kimberly Jones departs Federal Court in New York after grand jury hearing.
Lil' Kim, 30, whose real name is Kimberly Jones, departs Federal Court in New York, March 14, 2005. The rapper believed she was above the law and that being a Grammy-winning superstar allowed her to lie to a grand jury investigating a wild shootout outside a Manhattan radio station, a federal prosecutor said during closing arguments on Monday. She is on trial for lying to a federal grand jury investigating two of her associates, Suif Jackson and Damion Butler, in a 2001 shootout with a rival hip-hop group. Both men have pleaded guilty to firing shots that left one man injured. REUTERS/Chip East CME/GN
