476 views

American rapper and songwriter Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar aka Cardi B has been sentenced to 15- day of community service after she pleaded guilty to assault charges levelled against her.

The 29-year-old was involved in a brawl at Angels Strip Club in New York in 2018.

She was slammed with 12-count charges which include third-degree assault and second-degree reckless endangerment.

Cardi B was arraigned with Jeffrey Bush and Tawana Jackson-More, who were co-defendants in the case.

Apart from the community sentence, the court also ordered the musician to pay the court fees of the women involved in the case and stay away from them for three years.

Reacting to the sentencing in a statement, the rapper admitted she “made some bad decisions” in the past.

“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,” she said.

“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.
