Kanye West caught a break this week, after striking a deal in his paparazzo battery case from 2013.
According to TMZ.com, the rapper maintains his innocence by entering a plea of no contest for the attack of L.A. photographer Daniel Ramos, who he had a run-in in July of 2013 at LAX. In the deal with the City Attorney, Ye pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery in exchange for probation and the dismissal of an attempted theft charge.
He’s been sentenced to two years of probation, 24 anger management therapy sessions, and 250 hours of community service.
West had been charged with misdemeanor counts of battery and grand theft following the incident last summer.
West was also ordered to stay away from Ramos, and must pay for the photographer’s damaged equipment and any medical bills he incurred.
While addressing the court, Ramos said he felt West should be sent to jail because he shows no remorse. Furthermore, he claims the rapper used the attack to promote his album Yeezus.
