A$AP Rocky Convicted of Assault But Won’t Serve Jail Time

A$AP Rocky convicted of assault but wont serve jail time

Today a Swedish court ruled A$AP Rocky is guilty of assault in the case of a street brawl that left the rapper locked up in a Swedish jail for about a month. In its ruling on Wednesday, Stockholm District Court rejected the performer’s claim that the trio had been acting in self-defense.

“Based on statements from two witnesses, the court finds that the defendants were not subject to a current or imminent criminal attack,” the ruling said. “Therefore, they were not in a situation where they were entitled to use violence in self-defense. Nor could they have perceived themselves to be in such a situation.”
Lucky for A$AP Rocky he will not need to serve more prison time in this case. He will be subject to a probationary period of two years and must pay 12,500 Swedish Krona ($1,300) to the victim “for violation of his integrity and pain and suffering.” He has also been ordered to pay fees of 80,610 Swedish Krona (nearly $8,400) for the victim’s lawyer.
