Kanye West - Kanye West sentenced to two years probation

Kanye West has been sentenced to two years probation.

The 'Blood on the Leaves' rapper was in court today (17.03.14) where he pleaded no contest to misdemeanour charges of battery against a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport last year.

In a special plea deal, the City Attorney did not make Kanye plead guilty, and will be allowed to maintain is innocence legally.

As well as his probation, the rapper will have to undertake 250 hours of community service and undergo anger management counselling.

Kanye was originally charged with counts of battery and grand theft after an altercation with photographer Daniel Ramos at the airport in July last year. The photographer claimed he was punched and Kanye wrestled his camera to the ground during what he claimed was an unprovoked altercation.

Kanye was not in court, but Daniel testified saying he felt the rapper should go to jail, claiming his emotional injuries are still prominent and he thinks the star had used the incident to promote his album 'Yeezus'.

While he was not sent to jail, Kanye will have to pay for the damage to Daniel's equipment and his medical bills.

Kanye previously had a scuffle with photographers at the same airport in 2008, but the cases were dismissed after he completed anger management treatment.

He also settled another case out of court earlier this year, against a man he was alleged to have fought after he had used racial slurs against Kanye and his fiancee, Kim Kardashian.
