has cut a deal with prosecutors in Springfield, Massachusetts that will help
the singer wriggle out of a possible stint in jail.
The deal, which was negotiated
today (May 13), was the result of a legal case where the Southside, Queens lyricist
was accused of assaulting a pair of women and punching another one.
In May of 2004, during a
concert at the Hippodrome in Springfield, 50 leapt from the stage into the crowd
after an unidentified individual tossed water on him.
Upon leaping into the audience,
the women were reportedly hurt.
Under the conditions of
the deal, 50 (Curtis Jackson) must not use any illegal drugs for at least two
years and also follow a judge’s strict orders.
However, if he adheres to
the terms of the deal, the charges will be dropped.
Initially, he was charged
with assault and battery for each woman.
The plea agreement was reached
in a Springfield District Court.
