A$AP Rocky Found Guilty in Sweden Assault Case

Rapper A$AP Rocky has been found guilty of charges stemming from an assault case in Sweden.

According to court documents, Rocky was found guilty on Wednesday of assaulting 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari in Sweden on June 30th.

Rocky and his co-defendants argued they acted in self-defense though prosecutors claimed that they used bottles in the fight and thus used force that exceeded the parameters of self-defense.

The altercation landed Rocky and his co-defendants in prison and was ordered to pay $12,000 Swedish krona ($1,300 U.S. dollars) to the alleged victims.

This news comes after nearly two weeks after Rocky was released from a Swedish detention center after the assault trial on August 2nd. Rocky had been behind bars since turning himself into authorities on July 3rd.
