Akon Avoids Jail Time, Pleads Guilty In Harrasment Case

Superstar crooner Akon plead guilty to harrasment today (December 17) for tossing a fan off stage during a 2007 perfomance. As previously reported, during a concert at Dutchess Stadium in Fishkill in June 2007, 15-year-old Anthony Smith threw an object at Akon while he was onstage and the singer asked the crowd to point him out.

A security guard would drag the teenager to the stage and Akon would pick him up and throw him back into the crowd.

According to The Associated Press, Akon will be serving nojail time but will have to perform 65 hours of community service and pay a $250 fine.

Akon declined to comment on the judgement as he left the court.
