A$AP Rocky Will Not Fight Assault Conviction In Sweden

ASAP Rocky has decided to accept an assault conviction in Stockholm.

(AllHipHop News) A$AP Rocky won’t be appealing his misdemeanor assault conviction in Sweden.

The rapper’s lawyer, Slobodan Jovicic, has told the country’s TT news agency his client doesn’t have the energy to appeal the verdict, handed down last month following a June 30 street fight in Stockholm.

Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, spent a month behind bars in the city as lawmakers investigated the incident. He maintained he was acting in self-defense after a man attacked his bodyguard.

The rap star released a statement following the verdict, revealing he was “disappointed” by the judge’s decision.

He and his two co-defendants were ordered to pay over $22,000 in restitution and legal fees to the 19-year-old victim, Mustafa Jafari, and handed “conditional sentences”.

All three face time behind bars if they commit a similar offense in Sweden.
