But won’t serve jail time.A$AP Rocky has been found guilty of assault in Sweden. The four Judges in charge of the case said Rocky, and his co-defendants, Bladamir Emilio Corniel and David Tyrone Rispers “were not entitled to use violence in self-defense.”
The New York Times reports a large part of the trial hinged on whether a bottle was used in the assault. The victim, Mr. Jafari claimed to have been hit on the side of the head with one.
Rocky admitted picking up a bottle shortly before the fight, but said he put it back down shortly afterward because he “realized it was stupid.”
With prosecutors failing to prove the victim was struck in the head with a bottle, the judges conceded the crime did not warrant any further punishment.
As a result, Rocky won’t be spending anymore time in jail and has been ordered to pay Mr. Jafari damages. Mr. Jafari’s lawyer asked for about $16,000 in compensation, but the court awarded 12,500 Swedish kronor, about $1,300, for pain, insult and injuries.
