The “So Into You” rapper is on the verge of okaying a plea deal that will see him attending classes instead of going behind bars as a felon, according to court docs.
Fab, 41, who was born John Jackson, appeared in Bergen County Superior Court Jan. 28th with his lawyer Brian Neary to confirm the deal, but Neary asked for more time to iron out the details with the Prosecutor’s Office. Neary has said prosecutors offered a deal where Fab would plea to one count of felony brandishing and threatening a domestic violence victim with scissors, but it was not clear what Fab would plead to under the new plea.
However, a few provisions have been assured: in exchange for pleading guilty to a much lesser charge, Fabolous will not have to serve a day in jail and will be sentenced to “Pre-Trial Intervention” or PTI, which will be a series of domestic violence prevention workshops that will last from six months to a few years. If Fabolous keeps his nose clean, then he’ll have the charges expunged from his criminal record.
