Rapper A$ AP Rocky was found guilty of assault by Sweedish courts, but no additional jail time was mandated for the “Praise the Lord” singer after he was involved in a fight in Stockholm. Rocky was not required to be in court for his sentencing.
Rocky and two members of his entourage were convicted as guilty and the Stockholm District Court rejected the rapper’s claim that the three men were acting in self-defense reported CNN.
“Based on statements from two witnesses, the court finds that the defendants were not subject to a current or imminent criminal attack,” stated the ruling. “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.”
