UPDATE: A$AP Rocky's ongoing, headline-grabbing legal case has finally reached a conclusion. On Wednesday morning, he was found guilty of assault by a Swedish court. However, he will not serve time behind bars.
Rather, the rapper, along with two members of his entourage, were handed conditional sentences after judges found that the assault was not "of such a serious nature that a prison stance must be chosen."
Rocky, who said he was acting in self-defense when he engaged in a street fight in June, was released from jail in early August and quickly returned to the U.S. He will have to pay damages to the victim and repay the state for its expenses throughout the legal battle.
"Our reaction is disappointment," his attorney Slobodan Jovic said in a statement. "The court has recognized that Rocky and his party were followed and harassed, that no bottle was used, that Rocky didn't act in a joined attack with the others and that Rocky didn't inflict any wounds on the victim and that is a win. But the court has also concluded that Rocky didn't act in self-defense. It's a conclusion that Rocky and i don't agree with."
