Earlier this year Legendary Hip hop artist [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Tone Loc[/lastfm] was arrested and charged with domestic violence. And he finally got his day in court and plead ‘No Contest’ to the charges.
According to HiphopDX.com:
Tone Loc avoids significant jail time after pleading no contest.
Tone Loc pleaded no contest Monday (October 3) to domestic violence and gun charges, announced the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
According to CNN, the emcee entered the plea in response to counts of corporal injury to a spouse, cohabitant or child’s parent and possession of an assault weapon — specifically, a Colt AR-15 Sporter.
Previously the rapper had pleaded not guilty to both counts.
Burbank Superior Court Judge Patrick Hegarty sentenced him to one day in county jail, three years of probation, 52 weeks of anger management counseling and 30 days of community service.
Tone Loc was arrested in June after what was described as “a physical altercation with the mother of his child.”
In this instance Tone is neither guilty or innocent to the charges and only really gets a slap on the wrist. Hopefully through therapy he will change his ways.
