Report: L.E.S. Jewels sentenced to 10 days in jail (Updated: Or not)

Back in April, Bob Arihood reported that Joel Pakela, a.k.a., L.E.S Jewels, had been arrested and charged for assault... and resisting arrest. This week's issue of The Villager reports that Jewels was sentenced to 10 days in jail on June 1.

Update: According to the Department of Correction website, L.E.S. Jewels is scheduled for release on Oct. 20. He is currently in the Eric M. Taylor Center (EMTC) at Rikers.

We (The Villager) will check this out again tomorrow. I asked my reporter to check it out last week, and, according to him, the Manhattan District's Attorney's Office told him what we reported -- that Jewels got 10 days jail time. I see the Web site has a "projected" release date, but perhaps the site hasn't been updated? Can't say -- but we'll check it out tomorrow again, and if there is a correction to what we reported, we will make one.
