Rapper DMX was ordered confined to his suburban New York City home Friday by a judge who said he repeatedly violated bail conditions on tax fraud charges.

U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff also said the rapper must wear an electronic bracelet and ask his permission at least a week in advance if he wants to travel.

“A very strong argument could be made for keeping him in jail,” Rakoff said, but he added that judicial authorities are sometimes too quick in the United States to incarcerate people before trial.
