Date set for Lil' Kim trial

NEW YORK, April 21 (UPI) -- A federal judge in Manhattan has set a date for rapper Lil' Kim's felony perjury trial, E! Online reported Wednesday.

The 28-year-old hip-hop star, whose real name is Kimberly Jones, will stand trial on eight felony charges for allegedly lying to a federal grand jury investigating a 2001 shootout involving her entourage outside Manhattan's Hot 97 radio station, the entertainment Web site said.


U.S. District Judge Gerard Lynch decided to start the trial on Nov. 25 after prosecutors said they needed time to review more than 22 boxes of documents and other material seized during a search of the singer's offices.

The singer was indicted last week, along with three members of her entourage with conspiracy to commit perjury, making false statements and obstructing justice.

She pleaded innocent to all charges last Wednesday and remains free on $500,000 bond.

Prosecutors claim Lil' Kim lied about the circumstances surrounding a gunfight outside the Hot 97 radio station.
