Earlier today (December 7), Jim Jones appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court in connection to an assault charge from last January.

According to DNAinfo.com the Dipset rapper accepted a plea deal and pled guilty to assault in the third degree. He was sentenced to 10 months in an anger management course.

The charges stem from an incident in the beginning of 2010 following a car accident in Washington Heights. Prosecutors claim that after getting into a car accident, Jones attacked the driver of the other car and threw his keys onto oncoming traffic.

The Harlem rapper’s attorney Scott Leemon declined to comment. —Elan Mancini
