In a case that usually attracts jail time, rapper 50 Cent has avoided going to the slammer after he was charged with domestic violence against his second baby mama.
In a deal worked out by his lawyers that removes a serious domestic violence charge, 50 has agreed to plead no contest to one count of misdemeanor vandalism and was sentenced on Monday to three years probation.
He must complete 30 days of community service and attend counseling, as well as pay $7,100 in restitution to Daphne Narvarez, the mother of his second child.
The former couple got into a fight on June 23, when according to Narvarez, 50, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, kicked open a bedroom door at her Toluca Lake condo before kicking her. In August, he was charged with domestic violence and four counts of vandalism, and faced up to five years in prison if convicted.
According to TMZ, a restraining order against the rapper remains in effect.
