Rocky Will Discover If He Will Face Trial

A$AP Rocky Will Discover If He Will Face Trial On Charges Of Firing At A Former Buddy. Superior Court Judge M.L. Villar has ruled that rapper, fashion mogul, and two-time Grammy nominee, Rocky, has pleaded not guilty to two felony counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm. Rocky is in a relationship with Rihanna, with whom he has two young sons.

If convicted on all charges, Rocky could face up to 24 years in prison. The totality of the video and testimony shows there is sufficient evidence for the defendant to go to trial, but preliminary hearings have a much lower evidence standard than a trial.

At the first day of the hearing, Terell Ephron testified that he and Rocky, a friend since childhood, had belonged to the same collective of musicians and artists at their New York high school.

He said their relationship had started to go sour and resulted in the standoff in Hollywood on Nov. 6, 2021, when he said Rocky first pulled a gun on him and in a later confrontation fired shots that grazed Ephron’s knuckles.

Deputy District Attorney Paul Przelomiec told the judge that “you need nothing more than Mr. Ephron’s testimony by itself,” adding that the surveillance video that captured parts of the incident “corroborates exactly what Mr. Ephron said.” Tacopina countered that “there are some real problems with the testimony of the complainant,” adding that “I think there’s not enough evidence.”

Tacopina established while questioning a police detective earlier Monday that seven officers who searched a sidewalk and street about 20 minutes after the shots were allegedly fired found no evidence of the shooting, and that a pair of 9 mm shell casings in police possession were recovered by Ephron, who returned to the scene about an hour after the standoff.

Prosecutors played a video from near the scene where no people are initially visible, but what sounds like two gunshots can be heard. Then a man comes running around a corner, then slows to a walk. LAPD Detective Frank Flores testified they have established it is Rocky.

Rocky was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport in April and charged in August. He arrived in the courtroom Monday morning wearing a dark suit, sunglasses, and a face mask, after spending the weekend at the Formula One Las Vegas Grand Prix auto race.
