Update: Jim Jones Turns Down Plea Bargain In Assault Case

During his court appearance today in regards to his misdemeanor assault case with Ne-Yo’s manager, Jim Jones rejected a plea deal that would have cost the Harlem rapper ten days of community service.

As previously reported Jones was in Manhattan Criminal Court this morning (March 24) over an alleged brawl with Javon Smith – brother to Jay-Z’s right hand man Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith – at the 5th Avenue Louis Vuitton store. His lawyer Scott Leemon told XXL that he believes the criminal case is “a set up for the civil suit.” Adding, “There are no real injuries and an eyewitness has stated several times that Jim was not the person who started the physical altercation.”

Smith sued the Dipset Capo for $7 million, due to the pain he claims to have suffered from the fight. Jones plead not guilty to the charges last February.

The case is set to go to trial on April 21st.– Elan Mancini
