Kanye West Pleads No Contest to Battery Against Paparazzo; Avoids Jail Time

Ready to move on after last year's scuffle with a paparazzo, Kanye West plead no contest to misdemeanor battery on Monday (March 17).

Though the "Bound 2" rapper didn't personally appear, his attorney attended the court hearing in his stead.

After the plea was entered, Yeezy was sentenced to two years informal probation, 24 anger management sessions, and 250 hours of community service.

If he stays out of trouble and completes his requirements within that two years, his conviction will disappear.
