"The defendants have claimed that they acted in self-defence. Based on statements from two witnesses, the court finds that the defendants were not subject to a current or imminent criminal attack. Therefore, they were not in a situation where they were entitled to use violence in self-defence. Nor could they have perceived themselves to be in such a situation."

ASAP Rocky found guilty of assault but will not face prison time, Swedish prosecutors announce

Rapper A$AP Rocky was convicted of assault but will not face jail time, Swedish prosecutors announced on Wednesday.

The hip-hop star was not present when the verdict was announced. He was facing up to two years in prison.

A$AP Rocky and two of his companions -- performers Bladimir Corniel and David Rispers -- were accused of beating 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari during a street fight on June 30 in Stockholm, where the rapper was visiting as part of the European leg of his tour.

"All three defendants are convicted of assault and sentenced to conditional sentences," the statement said. "The court finds that the defendants were not in a situation where they were entitled to self-defense and that they have assaulted the victim by hitting and kicking him. However, it has not been proven that the defendants struck the victim in the head with a bottle or assaulted him with whole or broken bottles. The victim is awarded damages for violation of his integrity and pain and suffering, but less than he requested. The defendants shall, each based on their financial ability, repay the state for its expenses for public legal counsels."

"In an overall assessment the court finds that the assault has not been of such a serious nature that a prison sentence must be chosen," the statement continued. "The defendants are therefore sentenced to conditional sentences."

Had this happened the Swedish authorities would have sent out a memo reminding the US that they are not a banana republic jumping to the phone calls of dotus.

His lawyer or his consigliere?

From a more mainstream source CBS News: Lawyer who represented A$AP Rocky shot in Sweden (heavily snipped):
Mia Edwall Insulander, the secretary general of the Swedish Bar Association, confirmed to CBS News the victim is Henrik Olsson Lilja.

Insulander said Lilja is alive and in the hospital, but didn't have further word on his condition.

Several people were taken into custody for questioning and one was later arrested by prosecutors, according to Stockholm police. Sweden's Expressen newspaper reports the suspect arrested is also a senior lawyer, a woman who had previously been banned from contacting him. A witness told the paper the shooter was a man who wrestled with the victim before opening fire. Prosecutors told the paper the person arrested -- reportedly the woman -- is suspected of instigating attempted murder.
From their link to an article in Expressen Känd advokat skjuten i bröstet i Stockholm:
Polisens huvudteori är inte att det skett på grund av hans arbete.
I'm a nice guy so I'll translate to English:
The police's main theory is that it didn't happen because of his work.
