A great deal of perplexity surrounds the ruling on A$AP Rocky’s case as a Los Angeles judge concluded that there is sufficient evidence for him to stand trial on charges of firing a gun at a former friend and collaborator outside a Hollywood hotel in 2021.
Superior Court Judge M.L. Villar made the ruling at a preliminary hearing, after hearing roughly a day and a half of testimony. Rocky has pleaded not guilty to two felony counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm.
The 35-year-old hip-hop star has had quite a public profile given his relationship with Rihanna, with whom he has two young sons.
Villar stated that “the totality of the video and testimony” shows there is enough evidence for the defendant to go to trial, emphasizing the lower evidence standard of the preliminary hearing compared to a full trial.
