50 Cent will likely avoid jail time for allegedly trampling two women and punching a third during a concert last year, under a deal reached Friday with prosecutors in Springfield, Mass., reports Billboard Online.
If the rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, stays drug-free for two years and follows other orders laid out by a judge, the charges will be dropped.
Jackson, who lives in Farmington, Conn., entered a plea in Springfield District Court to facts sufficient for a guilty finding. He had been charged with three counts of assault and battery.
The incident occurred during a surprise concert at SpringfieldÕs Hippodrome club last May, in which Jackson allegedly jumped into a crowd after someone threw or squirted water at him. Three women were injured.
After an investigation and a hearing last fall, a clerk magistrate decided there was probable cause for the charges.
