“The agreement called for Mr. Jackson to plead no contest to a single count of misdemeanor vandalism, which deals with the door of the apartment that was damaged and owned by the landlord,” 50’s attorney Scott Leemon in a statement. “All remaining counts, including, the domestic violence charge will be dismissed. He has agreed to perform community service, attend counseling sessions and will be on unsupervised probation for a period of three years.”
Fiddy, whose real name is Curits Jackson, was also ordered to pay $7,100 in restitution to his former girlfriend Daphne Joy. As we reported earlier, Daphne claimed the 38-year-old entertainer assaulted her, kicked down her bedroom door and destroyed $7,000 worth of property in her Toluca Lake, Calif. condo on June 23.
A previous restraining order banning Jackson from contacting Joy remains in place.
