ASAP Rocky Pleads Not Guilty in Sweden
ASAP Rocky entered a not guilty plea Tuesday in Sweden.
Rocky’s trial in connection with an incident he’s said started when two men began following and harassing him and his team kicked off Tuesday in Stockholm District Court, CBS News reported. The trial is projected for a three-day run, though it’s not known if it will actually go that long.
Due to media interest, the trial is being conducted in a secure court facility in which no photo or video is allowed. The assault charges against Rocky and two others could lead to a two-year sentence if a conviction is handed down. Rocky, who’s been in custody since early July, said when captioning Instagram footage related to the incident that the two men in question were “a few drug addicts [who] are not my fans.” They had followed and harassed him, he said, as well as women on the street.
Despite his situation, Rocky is said to be “in good spirits” and is appreciative of fans’ ongoing support.
“He just wanna get home,” ASAP Ferg wrote on Instagram earlier this month. “Waiting on that court date to see wassup. He sends his love! Thank y’all for all your support. This shit is really annoying honestly because it really don’t make sense to me. But I’ll let God work the way he works.”
