The ACLU is considering the case of a Lakeland, Florida man, who has been sentenced to two years in prison over lyrics in a rap song.
In February, a song by rapper Antavio “T.O.” Johnson was posted to a MySpace page run by local label Hood Certified Entertainment.
Johnson was already in jail for violating his probation from a 2007 cocaine possession charge when the track “Kill Me a Cop,” was posted to Hood Certified’s page.
A Polk County gang detective unit found the song on the page and immediately began an investigation, which resulted in state prosecutors charging Johnson with “two counts of corruption by threat of a public servant.”
