Chuck Berry has faced all kinds of legal trouble. His criminal career began in 1944 when Berry, along with two friends, robbed three stores then hijacked a car at gunpoint in Kansas City. He served time for two and a half years at the Intermediate Reformatory of Young Men and was released on his 21st birthday in 1947. In 1979, Berry was convicted of tax evasion and served four months in jail and had to perform 1000 hours worth of benefit concerts. In 1990, he was accused of installing a video camera in the women's bathroom of a restaurant he owned. He claimed it was to catch a thieving employee, but a police raid of his home found tapes of the women, including a minor, using the toilet. The cops also found over two ounces of marijuana, and Berry plead guilty to misdemeanor drug possession in order to avoid child-pornography charges. He settled out of court with 59 women over the illicit taping.
