Jim Jones Pleads Guilty To Assaulting Ne-Yo's Manager

AllHipHop Staff

Harlem, New York rapper Jim Jones entered into a guilty plea in relation to a scuffle inside of the Louis Vuitton store in New York city last December.

Jones plead guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge earlier today (October 5) in Manhattan Criminal Court after being accused of assaulting Ne-Yo’s manager Jayvon Smith.

According to Jones’ attorney Scott Leemon, the rapper was sentenced to time served, based on the time he spent incarcerated shortly after the arrest in January.

Jones pled guilty in order to avoid probation, which could have interfered with his ability to tour, Leemon stated.

The rapper originally pleaded not guilty to the charges last February and initially denied his involvement in the altercation with Smith, which happened in the pricey store last December 22.
