Rapper A$AP Rocky Has Been Found Guilty of Assault

Swedish court has found A$AP Rocky guilty of assault for his role in a June street brawl.

According to the New York Times, the court says the rapper and 2 other defendants are sentenced to “conditional sentences,” which means no prison time in Sweden unless they commit a similar offense in that country.

This comes weeks after the rapper insisted during the trial that he had acted in self-defense when he threw his opponent, Mustafa Jafari, to the ground, and then, along with two members of his entourage, punched and kicked him.

Mr. Jafari had repeatedly harassed the rapper’s entourage, and had thrown a punch at his bodyguard just before the attack, Rocky said.

The case drew worldwide attention, with Donald Trump demanding the rapper’s release from jail.

A$AP has since returned to the U.S.A and to his career.

He had yet to address the court ruling as at press time.
