Busta Offered Plea Deal, Could Avoid Jail Time

busta.jpgBusta Rhymes was offered a plea deal this morning (February 20) by a Manhattan judge that would keep him out of jail if he concedes guilt in two separate assault incidents according to New York’s WABC Eyewitness News. Busta has been charged with the assault of a man who accidentally spit on his vehicle during the summer of 2006, as well as the December 26 beating of his former driver Eddie Hatchett during an argument over the man’s unpaid salary. Under the deal set forth by Criminal Court Judge Tanya Kennedy Busta would be sentenced to five days of community service, be required to perform two weeks of service at a non-profit organization speaking to children about the perils of violence, and attend anger management classes. Should Busta decide to accept, he would avoid possible jail time on both charges. Judge Kennedy gave the rapper until March 26 to consider and accept the deal.
