Tony Yayo’s Lawyer Says Witness Can Clear Rapper in Assault Case

yayo.jpgScott Leemon, the attorney representing Tony Yayo in his pending assault case, told Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Neil E. Ross today (September 6) that he has a witness whose testimony will clear his client. The G-Unit rapper stands accused of slapping and punching the 14-year-old son of Jimmy “Henchmen” Rosemond, a longtime nemesis of G-Unit head 50 Cent and manager of The Game. Yayo was arrested in March and charged with assault, harassment and endangering the welfare of a child and is now free on $5,000 bail. According to the Associated Press, Leemon claims to have a sworn statement from an unnamed witness who says he is sure that another unidentified man attacked the boy. Leemon has already revealed the person’s identity to prosecutors, and Judge Ross suggested that they interview the man as soon as possible. The judge also rejected a request made by Leemon for access to emails sent between Rosemond and his public relations firm. Yayo’s trial is expected to start in December.
