Rapper Cardi B pleaded guilty to two charges in a court case located in New York today, terminating a case brought to her in 2019 when she was accused in two 2018 fights at New York strip clubs. Prior to today, the rapper pleaded guilty to assault in the third degree and reckless endangerment in the second degree. She was sentenced just 15 days of community service; Cardi B was also given a three-year full order of protection for the two victims as well as court fees, according to the Queens district attorney’s office.
In a statement, the emcee wrote, “Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions. As a mother, it’s a practice that I am trying to instill in my children, but the example starts with me. I’ve made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to. These moments don’t define me and they are not reflective of who I am now. I’m looking forward to moving past this situation with my family and friends and getting back to the things I love the most—the music and my fans.”
According to reports, one of the occurrences took place at Angels Strip Club in Queens, New York, in August 2018. Two bartenders at the club claimed that the rapper demanded her associates attack them with bottles and chairs, according to previous reports. In June 2019 after a grand jury indictment, the “finesse” rapper pleaded not guilty to two felony charges for attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury. At that time, she also pleaded not guilty to several misdemeanor charges including reckless endangerment and violations which included harassment. In December 2019, court officials met to discuss whether social media posts had specified if the attack was premeditated, but Instagram and Facebook denied subpoenas for the content in question.
