Busta Rhymes Avoids Jail Time

February 22, 2007 8:36 PM | Busta Rhymes | Rap | Comments (0)

To avoid 6 months on lock down in prison on 2 separate assault charges, 34 year old Busta Rhymes (A.K.A Trevor Smith) is considering a deal that will allow him to be free if he pleads guilty to a misdemeanor assault with three years' probation. If he violates probation, he could go to jail for a year.

Busta had rejected an offer of six months in jail on the two assault charges, but now Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Tanya Kennedy said Busta could plead guilty to third-degree assault and receive a conditional discharge.

Busta is accused in one complaint with beating Edward Hatchett, 39, his former driver, "with a closed fist about the head and neck" and kicking him in the ribs and torso during a dispute over back pay. The Dec. 26 attack outside Rhymes' lower Manhattan office left Hatchett with cuts, bruises and substantial pain, a court complaint says.

In the second case, Busta is charged with assaulting a fan, allegedly for spitting on his car after an Aug. 12 performance at the AmsterJam Music Festival on Randalls Island. In addition to Assistant District Attorney Harrison Schweiloch’s initial offer of Busta serving six months in jail to cover both assaults, there would be orders of protection for the victims.
