American rapper and actor 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, until recently threatened to real jail time. However, the kicker got off only a suspended sentence for beating girlfriend.
Rapper 50 Cent could get up to five years in prison, but he was lucky. Los Angeles court ordered him to pay compensation in the amount of 7,100 dollars a year to attend courses of treatment for angry outbursts. In addition, the musician received three years probation, according to Huffington Post.
Recall that the incident took place in June at the home of the former girlfriend of Curtis Jackson. According to police, on June 23 between the 37-year-old rapper and his former girlfriend, whom he met three years and with whom he has a common child, a quarrel broke out when they were in her apartment in Los Angeles. The musician began smashing property of the woman, and she locked herself in the bathroom.
Police estimated damage to its property of 7.1 thousand dollars. However, this did not stop Jackson. He knocked the bathroom door and struck the woman foot. As a result of his former lover was injured. The girl pulled the popular singer from the hands of his offense. She reported him to the court in Los Angeles.
Note that on October 29 another famous rapper, Chris Brown, who was arrested over the weekend for assaulting a passer-by, was temporarily released from the police station. Judges are appointed meeting on November 25. On this day, the executor will be finally judged. Before this date, the singer ordered to stay away from the victim less than a kilometer.
According to Western sources, the 24-year-old singer refused to consider himself guilty, however, if the court does acknowledge his guilt, at best, Brown faces 180 days in jail and a $ 1,000 fine. But the penalty can be much more severe because the rapper is now serving a suspended sentence for beating his former girlfriend Rihanna.
