A$AP Rocky has been found guilty in his Swedish assault case. A Stockholm judge ruled the 30-year-old rapper, along with two of his companions guilty of assault over an altercation with Mustafa Jafari late July. The MC was given a suspended sentence of two years probation and will pay a fine of kr12,500 SEK (approximately USD 1,302) to the 19-year-old victim to cover damages and lawyer fees.
“The assault has not been of such a serious nature that a prison sentence must be chosen,” the court said in a statement. “The defendants are therefore sentenced to conditional sentences.” A$AP Rocky took to Instagram to express his thoughts on being handed a guilty verdict in the assault case.
