ASAP may never re-enter Rocky Sweden – if he can.
The Harlem rapper arrived in the US on Saturday after spending nearly a month in a Swedish jail for being suspected of being attacked. Rocky and his co-defendants – Bladimir Corniel and David Rispers – are now awaiting a verdict and possible conviction on August 14. However, his lawyer team told ABC News that Rocky would not have to return to the Scandinavian country for the verdict.
Sources informed TMZ that the Rocky camp was confident that he and his co-defendants would receive an unoffensive verdict, as they were given the green light to return home. According to insiders, he has no intention of ever returning to the country if he is finally left off the hook.
Rocky was arrested in early July after being filmed in Stockholm during an altercation. The 30-year-old did not plead guilty, claiming he and his team were defending themselves. When the Swedish authorities continued to investigate the incident, Rocky remained in custody, as he was classified as a flight risk.
According to official statements, Rocky could sit behind bars for up to two years, but the prosecutor's office is pushing for a six-month prison sentence.
What will he do if he is found guilty and has to return to Sweden? LL Cool J suggests that Rocky simply "negotiates" and flees.
"If he goes to other parts of Europe and they have extradition contracts, he will still have a bigger problem," said LL TMZ. "It's probably best if he tries to figure something out and get it over, hopefully he's not guilty."
