Tony yayo

Tony Yayo’s lawyer Scott Leemon released a statement saying that the District Attorney has dropped all misdemeanor assault charges related to that infamous run-in that Yayo and his friend Lawell Fletcher had with the 14 year old son of Game’s manager, Jimmy Rosemond. Yayo did plead guilty to a violation of harrassment, which his lawyer calls a “glorified traffic ticket.” So I guess Yayo was telling the truth all along. I’m sure he’s feeling vindicated here. Obviously there was some bullying and intimidation of a child here, and that’s still not cool, but what I’m really trying to figure out why the hell that guy Lawell Fletcher isn’t charged with anything. I mean, he admitted that he slapped the teen, right?

Here’s the statement:

SCOTT E. LEEMON, ESQ., ATTORNEY FOR MARVIN BERNARD
(P/K/A TONY YAYO) STATES:

I AM PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT AS OF THIS MORNING,
TONY YAYO IS NO LONGER FACING ANY CRIMINAL CHARGES
RELATING TO THE INCIDENT THAT OCCURRED LAST MARCH.
FIRST, I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S
OFFICE, WHO AFTER FURTHER INVESTIGATION, AGREED WITH US
THAT TONY YAYO SHOULD NOT BE SUBJECT TO ANY CRIMINAL
LIABIBILTY FOR THE INCIDENT.

AS I TOLD YOU FROM THE BEGINNING, TONY YAYO DID NOT
HIT ANYONE AND WOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING TO HARM A CHILD.
THIS FACT WAS CONFIRMED BY MR. FLETCHER WHEN HE TOLD
MEMBERS OF THE NOTORIOUS HIP HOP POLICE IN AUGUST THAT
HE DID THIS ON HIS OWN. THE HIP HOP POLICE BURIED THIS
HELPFUL INFORMATION AND THE CHARGES AGAINST TONY YAYO
PROCEEDED UNTIL TODAY. WITHOUT A DOUBT, TODAY’S
PROCEEDINGS HAVE VALIDATED MR. BERNARD’S CLAIM HE WAS
FALSELY ACCUSED.

MARVIN BERNARD, A FATHER OF TWO, WAS ACCUSED OF
DOING SOMETHING HE DID NOT DO…I HOPE THE MEDIA REPORTS
THE DISMISSAL OF THE CRIMINAL CHARGES AS PROMINENTLY AS
THE FALSE ALLEGATION WAS REPORTED.

TO FURTHER ADDRESS WHAT HAPPENED IN COURT—MR.
BERNARD PLED GUILTY TO A VIOLATION, WHICH IS NOTHING
MORE THAN A GLORIFIED TRAFFIC TICKET. IN FACT, IT DOES
NOT RESULT IN ANY CRIMINAL RECORD. ADDITIONALLY, NEW
YORK LAW PROVIDES FOR THE SEALING OF ALL OF THE RECORDS
OF THE ARREST. FURTHERMORE, HE ONLY ACCEPTED THIS NON-
CRIMINAL RESOLUTION TO AVOID THE UNNECESSARY HARDSHIPS
OF A TRIAL, ON BOTH SIDES.

IN SUM, ALL THAT TONY YAYO ADMITTED TO DOING, WAS
GETTING OUT OF THE CAR AND GLARING AT THE VICTIM. ONCE
HE REALIZED WHAT FLETCHER WAS DOING, HE WENT AND
GRABBED FLETCHER TO PULL HIM AWAY FROM THE VICTIM.
THIS WAS NOT CRIMINAL AND THE DA’S OFFICE AGREED BY ONLY
PURSUING THE VIOLATION.
