Kanye West Gets Probation, Anger Management Courses + Community Service in Plea Deal
Kanye West was sentenced to two years of probation and he must attend 24 anger management therapy sessions and perform 250 hours of community service as part of his special plea deal stemming from his paparazzo assault case.
Back in July of 2013, ‘Ye got into a scuffle with photographer Daniel Ramos at LAX and he’s paying for it with his time.
There was early talk the case would be prosecuted as a felony, but things didn’t get that far.
Yesterday (March 17), Yeezy, 36, pleaded no contest in the misdemeanor battery case with the photographer. He still maintains his innocence, although he was charged with counts of battery and grand theft, according to reports. In case you don’t remember, the paparazzo was goading the rapper at the airport and they tussled. West even tried to confiscate the snapper’s camera as tensions flared. Things could have been a LOT worse.
While the paparazzi can be a serious annoyance to the rich and famous, it’s probably best to just ignore ’em. That’s something for Yeezy to think about while performing his deeds for the community and taking his classes.
