Nate Dogg Pleads Guilty To Trespass and Battery

3/25/2008 8:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nate DoggFormer Death Row recording artist Nate Dogg won't be packing heat for the next ten years!

TMZ has learned Nate, who is Snoop Dogg's cousin, pleaded guilty in Orange County, Calif. court on March 20 to aggravated trespassing and battery stemming from a domestic violence complaint back in 2006. Dogg was sentenced to three years informal probation, must complete a domestic violence/batterers treatment program and can not own a weapon for 10 years. What's a guy to do without his piece?!

In 2006, Nate was charged with five misdemeanors -- aggravated trespass of a dwelling, battery, annoying telephone calls, dissuading a witness from reporting a crime and violating a protective order from a previous domestic violence incident -- after breaking into a Huntington Beach home where his ex-girlfriend, Jane Doe, her new boyfriend and her mother resided. Nate then punched the boyfriend in the face and left.
While three of the five charges were dropped, Nate's ex and her bf both filed restraining orders against the hip hop artist.

It hasn't been an easy couple of years for the 38-year-old: In December 2007, he suffered a stroke and spent time recovering in a medical rehabilitation facility.

Funny how these things add to the image of black rappers, so they graciously (greatfuly?) accept and plead guilty. They then seem "cool" because they live up to their lyrics of hitting women (oh, sorry, "hoes", which they call all women), killing their brothers (sorry, "ni**ahs") , and basically having no respect for anyone, not even themselves. Its sad, KIDS listen to this crap! I'm not saying that it's these "gangstahs" fault that a lot of our kids are becoming/think they are "ghetto", but they sure are part of it! Geez. Try doing something good with your life, instead of getting arrested, doing drugs, getting drunk, and negatively influences society. Try HELPING people...

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. WAS AN AMAZING MAN, MALCOLM X AS WELL. ROSA PARKS HAS BEEN AN INSPIRATION TO MILLIONS NOW AND YET UNBORN, AFRICAN AMERICAN INVENTORS GAVE US MANY THINGS FROM THE STREET LIGHT TO OVER 300 USES FOR PEANUTS. TO DESCRIBE THEM PERSONALLY WOULD BE STUPID AS THEY ARE HUMAN BEINGS JUST LIKE EVERYONE AND AND HAVE JUST AS MUCH TO OFFER AS ANYONE. PERSONALLY I ENJOY LIVING IN A WORLD FULL OF DIVERSE PEOPLE AND IDEAS, I FEEL PEOPLE SHOULD BE LOOKED AT ON AN INDIVIDUAL LEVEL FOR WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY CONTRIBUTE RATHER THAN GENERALIZED AS NOT ONLY A GROUP BUT A NEGATIVE AND CRIME RIDDEN GROUP AT THAT. REFERRING TO AFRICAN AMERICANS BEING KILLED WITH PLEASURE IS UNFATHOMABLE TO ME. AMERICAN HISTORY X IS ONE OF MAY FAVORITE MOVIES AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE WITH AN INTEREST IN RACISM AND BLIND HATRED. I DONT EXPECT ANYONE TO TAKE MY ADVICE THOUGH BECAUSE SUCH HATE IS NOT SUBJECT TO HAVING AN OPEN MIND, AND THIS IS SAD.

The ones to blame are the doctors that saved his life in Dec. 2007 when he had the stroke.It would have saved a bunch of people time and money.Rap is the music of those that can't sing.It takes no melodic or good voice to rap,just talk in rhyme with music in the back ground.Great achivement,duh.Singing is blues,opera,balads and R&B.For thoese you need a voice well trained and good.Anybody can rap,anybody,dogg.

44. obviously bitter you couldn't make it as a singer or a rapper...ANYWAY...I'm disappointed to see that even as Nate Dogg is getting older he is not maturing..he's still acting like the thug he was in the 90's. How many kids do you need to grow up?? His cousin Snoop is a friggin role model even if he smokes medical marijuana..Half of Long Beach plays on that football team. So my point is HATERS its just one person and not a whole race...
Peace.

Does this mean Nate Dogg is turning hard core ? No more hitting the low notes ? GEEZ... Oh well, I'm ready for your next album you silly little gangster. If I was a hoe's boyfriend I would not mess with any of these hard bodied rappers from the west side. Their motto is something like West side til we die MFERS!! hooligans with rhythm. mmmm yes! I hope they can bring beat boxing back. PFF PFF PA PFFF PA PA PA PFFF UH HUUA UH HUAA PA PFF PFF PFFAF
