Over a month after rapper Tony Yayos altercation with the 14-year-old son of Jimmy Henchmen Rosemond, Yayo is finally expected to make his first appearance in court on Wednesday (Apr. 25).
Yayo’s court appearance stems from allegations stating that the rapper slapped and verbally assaulted Rosemonds son as he was walking to Czar Entertainment for an internship on March 20.
Yayo’s charges include one count of misdemeanor assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor.
On the day of Yayo’s court appearance yet another rally is expected, but this time the rally will take place outside of the courtroom by supporters of Cynthia Reed, the mother of the 14-year-old victim.
Attendees of the rally will include local councilmen, community leaders, and the family of Israel Ramirez, the bodyguard who was gunned down on the set of a Busta Rhyme’s video.
The first rally took place on Apr. 2 and was held in the hopes of creating a call for action in order to create change in the music community.
Tony Yayo has already served two consecutive sentences for weapons possession charges received in Dec. 2002.
