NEW YORK (Top40 Charts) - U.S. District Court Judge Sarah Vance gave identical twin rappers Kane & Abel (David and Daniel Garcia) the maximum sentence of three years in jail as part of plea agreement last Wednesday (September 12). The twins pleaded guilty to the charge of misprision of a felony and will begin their sentence on October 10. Judge Vance rejected an earlier plea agreement that would have called for only 24 months of jail time.

Kane & Abel's charges stem from their involvement with reputed drug kingpin Richard Pena, who reportedly financed the twins' recording career while they were aspiring artists attending Xavier University. Pena was arrested in 1997 and is currently serving time for committing eight murders. As the twins' recording career failed to take off, they apparently became in debt to Pena and distributed narcotics for him to work off their debt from 1996 to 1997.

Kane & Abel are scheduled to release their next album, Most Wanted Boys, on October 9, the day before their jail sentence is scheduled to begin. The set features guest appearances from Juvenile and Snoop Dogg. The twins now record for their own Most Wanted Records, and have put a plan in place that will keep the label afloat while they serve their jail time. The twins' best selling album to date was the gold-certified Am I My Brothers Keeper?, which was released on No Limit Records in 1998.
