{mosimage}As we previously reported yesterday, Tony Yayo was cleared of the assault charges yesterday for allegedly slapping the son of Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond. Yayo was sentenced yesterday to 10 days of community service after pleading guilty to harassment of the 14-year-old boy. Yayo admitted in a Manhattan Criminal Court that on March 20th of 07, he got out of a sport utility vehicle and "glared" at James Rosemond Jr. in a way that was "meant to threaten physical violence."
Yayo will do community service at the Book Bank Foundation, an organization that promotes literacy.

Yayo's acquaintance, Lowell Fletcher, admitted in a statement that he "'…saw a young boy wearing a Czar Entertainment T-shirt. Fletcher further stated that he slapped the boy across the face and began to grab the boy's shirt. At this point Marvin Bernard exited the vehicle, tried to restrain him (Fletcher) and get him back in the vehicle." Fletcher pleased guilty to a misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child for grabbing the teen. Fletcher recieved a nine-month jail sentence.
