Grammy Winner D'Angelo Resolves Prostitution Case



    How to Control Your Devices (So They Don't Control You)

    D'Angelo has resolved his New York City prostitution case by pleading guilty to disorderly conduct.

    The Grammy Award-winning R&B singer entered his plea Friday. The offense is a violation, not a crime.

    Prosecutors say he has satisfied conditions they declined to specify. The singer and his lawyer declined to comment.

    The 37-year-old D'Angelo was arrested in March 2010. Police said he tried to pay $40 for a sex act to an undercover officer posing as a prostitute.

    D'Angelo — born Michael Archer — emerged as a standout among the neosoul singers of the 1990s. His Grammys include the 2000 Best R&B Album award for "Voodoo."

    He hasn't released an album since and has had a series of run-ins with the law.
