CEO Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond was sentenced Tuesday (June 6) to three

years of unsupervised probation and fined $2,500 for his role in an incident involving

a Washington disc jockey.

Several of Rosemond’s

supporters, including his business partner Bryce Wilson, Queen Latifah, Flavor

Unit’s Shakim Compere, Czar Entertainment staff, close friends, and family,

were present as the decision was handed down.

The judgment marks

the latest chapter in months of litigation concerning the case.

"The judge’s

decision to place Mr. Rosemond on unsupervised probation was in recognition

that he is and continues to be a positive influence within the community. We

are thankful that the judge acknowledged, in his own words that this should

have never been presented to the district court to begin with and saw this case

for what it was," stated his attorneys Scott Srebnick and William Brennan.

Rosemond, who manages

rapper the Game, was found guilty earlier this year of beating 93.9 WKYS-FM

on-air personality Xzulu "The Big Lipped Bandit" during an appearance

with the Compton MC in Lanham, Md.

According to reports,

the incident was sparked when Xzulu allegedly made an off-color remark about

Henchmen’s cell phone headset during an interview to promote Game’s debut album

The Documentary.

Police said a group

of men, including Game, confronted Xzulu shortly after the interview and kicked

and beat him. The DJ was later taken to an area hospital with serious internal

injuries.

Although Game was

formally charged with assault and battery, charges were later dropped against

the lyricist, but not Rosemond, who was sought on misdemeanor assault charges.
