ASAP Rocky took to Instagram to share his disappointment over the guilty verdict handed down to him over the assault charge he copped in Sweden following his trial.
“I AM OF COURSE DISAPPOINTED BY TODAY’S VERDICT. I WANT TO SAY THANKS AGAIN TO ALL OF MY FANS, FRIENDS, AND EVERYONE WHO SHOWED ME LOVE DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME,” he wrote on Instagram.
“IMMA KEEP MOVING FORWARD. THANK YOU TO MY TEAM, MY MANAGEMENT, ATTORNEYS, LABEL AND EVERYONE WHO ADVOCATED FOR JUSTICE. 🙏🏿”
On Wednesday, the courts found the rapper guilty of assaulting a man who harassed him and his entourage.
Swedish prosecutors tried to secure a six-month prison sentence for Rocky but a panel of four judges, led by Senior Judge Per Lennerbrant, found that the assault was not of such a “serious nature that a prison sentence must be chosen.”
He was given a suspended sentence and is not required to do any more jail time.
