50 Cent Gets Probation, Community Service + More In Domestic Violence Case
50 Cent’s legal troubles finally have an end result. Fif and his ex / baby’s mother were allegedly involved in an argument that got violent over the summer. According to reports, Curtis went on a rampage, breaking a chandelier, door, television and other property owned by Daphne Joy. He also is said to have kicked Joy. Due to his legal history, he was facing a max of five years in prison as well as $50,000 in fines.
Fitty hasn’t made public comments about the incident, nor has his legal team. Back in July, his lawyer told CNN that Jackson denied all allegations and was cooperating with the L.A. City Attorney’s Office in hopes to bring clarity to the matter.
The list of charges included one count of domestic violence and four counts of misdemeanor vandalism. 50 pled not guilty to the charges in August. Now he decided to take a plea deal with prosecutors in order to drop the domestic violence charge. Instead, he agreed to plea no contest to one count of misdemeanor vandalism.
Although he’ll avoid jail time, 50 has been sentenced to three years probation, 30 days of community service, counseling and $7,000 in restitution for the damages he caused to Daphne’s property.
