50 Cent's Impending Jail Time

May 14, 2005 02:43:18 GMT

Rapper 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, will avoid jail time for allegedly trampling two women and punching another one during a concert at Springfield's Hippodrome club May last year, in one condition that he stays drug free and doesn't commit any other crimes for two years. Taneka Nesbitt, one of the three women, claimed she needed knee surgery after Jackson pushed her to the floor and walked over her back. Whereas, another woman named Donna Dejesus, said Jackson punched her in the face. Thus, both of them filed a lawsuit, demanding 50 Cent to be punished.

However, the rapper lawyer Steven Leary said his client is a "law abiding citizen" who turned his life around after his drug troubles. "I don't see this as a case that deserves any jail time," Leary said. Fortunately, Judge Robert Kumor has had a better consideration, in which he told the rapper that he has a responsibility to be a positive role model for his 9-year-old son and his fans. Due to that fact, the judge, has on Friday, decided the assault and battery charges will be dropped with such requirement, under which the rapper could then send to jail if he doesn't fulfil it.
