A$AP Rocky Facing ‘Up To 14 Years’ In Prison If Convicted Of Felony Charge, LA Criminal Attorney Says

A$AP Rocky could be locked away for over a decade if he is convicted of assault with a deadly weapon, which is a felony, and Criminal Attorney Lara Yeretsian explains why. 

A$AP Rocky, 33, was arrested at Los Angeles International airport on April 20 by detectives from LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division in connection with a shooting that occurred just five months earlier, in November 2021. After the rapper, who is expecting his first child with his girlfriend Rihanna, 34, was later charged with assault with a deadly weapon, HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY to LA-based criminal attorney Lara Yeretsian, who said that, if convicted, he could face up to 14 years in jail for this felony charge.

As reported, A$AP — whose real name is Rakim Mayers — was released just hours after being taken into custody on April 20. According to the arrest report, obtained by HollywoodLife, he was charged with a felony by Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and released on $550,000 bail. 

And even though A$AP is likely headed back to Barbados to be by Rihanna’s side, Attorney Yeretsian, who has not worked with A$AP, said in the interview that he will have to head back to LA in just a few short weeks to face charges if filed by the DA’s office, and if convicted he could be locked away for some time.  Find out why Attorney Yeretsian believes that he could be jailed if convicted of the shooting.
