Update: Akon Changes Plea In Fan Toss Case, Sentenced To Community Service

After getting caught on camera throwing a fan offstage during a concert last summer, Konvict Records singer Akon has pleaded guilty in court this morning to the subsequent harassment charges.

USA Today is reporting that in exchange for the guilty plea, the Senegalese born hip-hop hookman will not have to serve any time behind bars if he does 65 hours of community service. Along with the sentence, Kon will also have to pay a $250 fine.

As XXLmag.com previously reported, the case stems from an incident in which Kon threw a teenager into the crowd during a performance at the KFest at Fishkill, NY’s Dutchess Stadium last June. Akon originally pled not guilty earlier in the month to the charges. Now with his new plea the case will not go to trial.

Kon’s latest release Freedom debuted on the Billboard 200 last week. After his second week on the charts he has sold a total of 173,900 copies. –Elan Mancini

    Akon can service his community by setting up T-Pain’s auto tune on fire, taking singing lessons (I’d rather he stop singing all together), and by drinking a gallon bleech!
