The rapper ASAP Rocky was found guilty of assault in Sweden, but will not return to jail. The case gripped the music world, and President Trump. https://t.co/CSZt5g7F2F— The New York Times (@nytimes) August 14, 2019
The case that "gripped" the music world and Donald Trump (LMAO) finally has a conclusion. A$AP Rocky has been found guilty of assault in Sweden. He and his co-defendants will serve suspended sentences (walk free, essentially) and are required to pay restitution/damages to their victim. They escaped a steeper penalty, according to Swedish authorities, because the Swedish prosecutor could not definitively prove A$AP & co. assaulted the victim with a bottle, as alleged. In related news, the New York Times continues to embarrass itself.
