Kanye cut a deal with L.A. prosecutors today that will see him serving 24 months of probation and completing 250 hours of community service as punishment for his “assault” of a photographer at LAX airport back in July of last year. Ye will also have to complete 24 sessions of anger management therapy as ordered by the court. The deal he reached with the D.A. hinges on a no contest plea to the charge of misdemeanor battery, which means that he isn’t technically admitting that he was guilty of attacking photographer Daniel Ramos. CBS News is reporting that he was also sentenced to 1 day in jail, although that is largely symbolic and he is expected to be booked and released immediately.
Kanye still has to face a civil suit filed against him by Ramos.
It appears 50 will avoid jail time in the domestic violence case that was filed against him by his child’s mother Daphne Joy earlier this year after working out a plea deal with prosecutors earlier today. Under the terms of the agreement, he will perform community service and receive 3 years probation. Joy claimed Curtis kicked her and trashed her LA condo back in June. According to TMZ, her restraining order against 50 will still stand and he is expected to pay her $ 7100 in restitution for the damage to her home.

It’s like defense attorney Mark Geragos said, prosecutors in this country aren’t equipped to represent the interests of the young Black males they usually seek to incarcerate.
