"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."
