Prosecutor: ASAP Rocky sentence lower than expected

1:28 min

The suspended sentences handed down to US rapper ASAP Rocky and two of his associates were lower than what prosecutor Daniel Suneson expected.

A Stockholm District Court found the trio guilty of assault on Wednesday. The artist, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, and two members of his entourage received fines and suspended sentences for their role in a brawl, meaning they'll face no prison time.

Suneson, who headed up the case against the artist, had asked the court for a punishment of 6 months prison for the trio. He told Radio Sweden he would decide in a couple of days whether to appeal the verdict.

"I'm not sure yet. I've only read the verdict once," he said on Wednesday afternoon.
