Rapper YG Felony Robbery Case Dismissed!
According to reports, YG is off the hook for an alleged robbery in Sin City … his criminal case was just dismissed on the morning of jury selection…
CelebnMusic247.com has learned via sources close to the rapper that YG, born Keenon Dequan Ray Jackson, has settled out of court with the alleged robbery victim.
It has also been revealed that the guy was no longer interested in cooperating with prosecutors in the criminal case.
TMZ broke the story … YG was facing a felony robbery charge for allegedly yanking a dude’s chain off his neck in a 2018 altercation at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, before making off with the diamond-laced pendant.
We’re told YG maintained he never stole the chain from the man, though he admitted the bling snapped off when the two were in a fight.
The 32-year-old West Coast rapper’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, tells TMZ:
Justice was served expeditiously, we would’ve had the same result if the case went to trial.
It’s not the first time something like this has happened … as we first told you back in January, prosecutors in Los Angeles declined to file charges against him because there wasn’t enough evidence to link him to another alleged robbery.
