Fab accepts a plea deal for his alleged abuse of Emily B.
According to new reports, Fabolous is planning to accept a plea deal in the case of his alleged domestic assault of his wife Emily B. Fab reportedly appeared in court on January 28th with attorney Brian Neary, who requested that prosecutors finalize all details of the deal.
The emcee will be able to skip out on jail time if he completes violence prevention workshops for six to 12 months total. Fab will have to plead guilty on one count of felony brandishing of a weapon or one count of threatening domestic violence. Should he successfully complete the terms of his deal, the charges will be expunged.
It was last March that Fab was accused of assault after the Brooklyn rapper reportedly punched his longtime girlfriend seven times in the face, causing her to lose her two front teeth. Emily B also told authorities that Fabolous sent threatening texts indicating that he wanted to hit her in the head with a baseball bat and that the only thing keeping him from killing her was that he “did not want to go out like that.”
When her father and brother came to the couple’s residence in New Jersey, he allegedly threatened them as well, while holding a pair of scissors after he failed to retrieve a pair of handguns that had been removed and hidden by Emily B’s family out of fear for her safety.
In October, Fabolous was offered an initial plea deal that would have had his charges dismissed if he completed a pre-trial intervention program. He turned it down and faced a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
