FAYETTE COUNTY, Ga. - Rapper Rick Ross has struck a deal in his kidnapping trial.
Ross appeared before a Fayette County judge on Tuesday. The case stems from a 2015 incident where his former employees claimed the rapper and his manager beat and pistol whipped them.
Last year, Ross and his manager sought immunity claiming they acted in self-defense.
Under the deal, Ross pleaded “No Contest” to one felony count of aggravated assault. The other felony charges were dropped.
The rapper was also given a total of 60 months of probation for five misdemeanors.
Ross was sentenced as a first-time felony offender so once he pays the $10,000 fine the conviction will be erased from his record.
