A$AP Rocky pleads not guilty as he finally appeared for his trial in Sweden, weeks after he was arrested and illegally detained for a minor crime with some alleged fans in Stockholm.
The embattled rapper whose case was almost getting to the level of some diplomatic row between Sweden and the United States of America, after President Donald Trump tried to intervene, but failed, had his family members in Sweden to show him support in the courtroom.
According to the report by TMZ, A$AP’s mother, Renee Black, was escorted through the crowd of reporters, photographers and onlookers outside the Stockholm courthouse Tuesday morning.
Once the trial began, the rapper’s attorney, told the judge A$AP as pleading not guilty to assault and said his client was acting in self-defence.
The trial could go for up to 2 more days, but it’s unclear if prosecutors and A$AP’s team will need that much time to present their cases.
A$AP has been in custody since early July, getting detained after turning himself into Swedish authorities following a street brawl in the nation’s capital. He was officially charged with assault last week, and he faces a maximum sentence of 2 years in prison.
