At that moment, Hughes told Eminem that his purpose in being there was to kill him. Now, Hughes is finally facing some consequences, for his constant stalking, and threat, against Eminem.
Hughes Receives Five Years Of Probation
According to the Macomb Daily, Hughes has been sentenced to five years of probation. He was initially charged with second-degree home invasion. Hughes had also entered a plea deal, after spending 524 days in a Macomb County jail.
In this plea deal, the charges that Hughes was able to get dropped were first-degree home invasion, malicious destruction of property between $1,000 and $20,000, and assault of a jail employee.
In the court hearing, prosecutors also noted that the statements made by Hughes were “confusing.

At the time, Eminem was sleeping and was soon able to get Hughes to leave the property, after the threat was made, to kill Eminem. Security guards were outside the house and were able to hold Hughes until police arrived, at the scene.
