As we previously reported, Yayo (born Marvin Bernard) was arrested in March after allegedly smacking the 14 year-old who was walking down the street on his way to the Czar Entertainment offices where he interns after school.
"I am looking forward to a trial and it is important that justice be done," said Cynthia Reed, the mother of the victim via a statement. "Trials bring out facts, and I know the facts will expose the cowardly act of G Unit's member Yayo of assaulting my 14 year old son."
The defense believes that they have a good chance of winning the case, as they have revealed they have uncovered a witness that will testify at trial to Yayo's innocence. The witness, whose name is being withheld, has reportedly given a sworn statement saying he knows both the teen, James Rosemond, and Yayo, and that the boy was hit by a yet unidentified man. Yayo's attorney Scott Leemon also said that he has given that information to prosecutors.
