Kidd Kidd Pleads Guilty to Harassment Violation
Kidd Kidd pleaded guilty to a harassment violation on Wednesday (Feb. 10). The 2015 XXL Freshman, whose real name is Curtis Stewart, was accused of choking his ex-girlfriend Maurita Robinson and shoving her in a dresser at hotel.
The G-Unit rapper was arrested last July in Times Square before his scheduled performance at the 2015 XXL Freshman concert. At the time, Kidd Kidd's representation denied the allegations that led to his arrest.
"The New York allegations are totally baseless," Kidd Kidd's lawyer Scott Leemon said. "They were made 4 months later by a woman who has a history of making false allegations against Mr. Stewart. We are confident once the District Attorney’s office investigate the matter, Kidd Kidd will be vindicated.”
Just a few days after his arrest, Kidd Kidd was released on bail. G-Unit put up $105,000 to get their youngest member out on bail at the time.
Kidd Kidd originally faced charges of strangulation and assault. But prosecutors offered the New Orleans rapper a non-criminal plea deal following his completion of a batterer's program, according to the New York Daily News.
"We're glad the DA's office saw it the way we did, that this should not result in a criminal record," Scott Leemon said today (Feb. 10).
Kidd Kidd is also facing similar allegations to this incident from the same woman, Maurita Robinson, in his hometown of New Orleans. There is no update on the status of that situation at this time.
