After being charged in a case involving an altercation with two sisters who were serving drinks at a strip club in Queens, New York, the 29-year-old entered a guilty plea.
According to a representative for the Queens district attorney’s office, the rapper, whose true name is Belcalis Almánzar, entered pleas of guilty to assault in the third degree and reckless endangerment in the second degree.
In accordance with the court’s decision, Cardi B was given a 15-day community service requirement, a three-year complete order of protection for the two victims, and court costs.
No one is above the law, Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz said in an article by latimes.com. Ms. Belcalis Almánzar and her two co-defendants have admitted guilt and taken ownership of their crimes. The resolution, which calls for suitable community service, is approved by this office.
Cardi B must complete the 15 days of community service after pleading guilty to third-degree assault and second-degree reckless endangerment, the Queens District Attorney’s office noted.
Cardi B said in a statement that she was not ashamed to admit that she had made poor choices in the past. “These experiences don’t make me who I am, and they don’t reflect who I am right now. Being responsible for your actions is a necessary component of maturing and growing up.
