A$AP Rocky and two members of his entourage have been found guilty of assaulting Mustafa Jafar in a Stockholm, Sweden street fight.
“Based on statements from two witnesses, the court finds that the defendants were not subject to a current or imminent criminal attack,” the statement from the Stockholm court reads. “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.”
Rocky and the two men will not have to serve any additional jail time. They had been locked up for a month before being released and allowed to leave Sweden pending the verdict.
Their sentence was lighter than the six months prosecutors were seeking because the state wasn't able to prove the most serious aspects of the charges.
“The overall evidentiary situation in the case has been complex,” said presiding judge Per Lennerbrant. “The prosecutor has not been able to prove that the victim was struck in the back of the head with a bottle or that he was in any other way assaulted with bottles. This has affected the assessment of the seriousness of the crime.”
Rocky will have to pay damages to the victim and reimburse the state for “expenses and public legal counsels".
