50 Cent: Domestic Violence Charge Dropped in Exchange for Vandalism Plea
Though he faced some serious charges, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson got out of the courtroom today with just misdemeanor vandalism on his record (October 28).
Charged with domestic violence against ex-girlfriend Daphne Narvaez in June, the "Candy Shop" rapper will still be under the scrutiny of the court for awhile.
According to his attorney Scott Leemon, "The agreement called for Mr. Jackson to plead no contest to a single count of misdemeanor vandalism, which deals with the door of the apartment that was damaged and owned by the landlord. All remaining counts, including, the domestic violence charge will be dismissed. He has agreed to perform community service, attend counseling sessions and will be on unsupervised probation for a period of three years."
This is far from his first brush with Johnny law, nor is it his first time on probation. Back in 2005, 50 was placed on two years' probation from an incident where he jumped into the audience after being hit with a water bottle.
