Rapper A$AP Rocky has been found guilty of assault by a Swedish court but will not serve jail time.

Rocky, who pleaded not guilty to assault after an altercation with 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari in Stockholm, was found guilty alongside two members of his entourage, Bladimir Corniel and David Rispers.

The news comes after Rocky was allowed to return to the U.S. after being released from jail.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of my fans, friends, and anyone across the globe who supported me during these last few weeks,” Rocky wrote on Instagram after his release. “I can’t begin to describe how grateful I am for all of you. This has been a very difficult and humbling experience. I want to thank the court for allowing me, Bladi, and Thoto to return to our family and friends. Thanks again for all of the love and support.”

Rocky was initially facing up to two years in prison, but Swedish prosecutors called for a much shorter sentence, according to USA Today reporter Kim Hjelmgaard.

The rapper had previously testified that he and his team wanted to “defuse the situation” before his security guard stepped in.

“We wanted to defuse the situation and get away from these guys,” the rapper said. “After a while, my security guard started pushing him away, begging him to leave, go from there. Me and my crew told them that, listen, don’t go where we are going, go the other way, we don’t want any trouble.”

Rocky, Rispers, and Corniel will not serve jail time and have been given suspended sentences and ordered to pay damages to the victim.
