The Philadelphia Daily News reports that Cassidy was acquitted of murder on Tuesday (January 24) and, instead, convicted of involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault for a back-alley shootout that left one man dead and two others injured. “Anybody who knows me, like out of [the victim’s] family or friends know I’ve never been a troublemaker,” Cassidy, 23, said in court. “I’ve been praying for him, asking for forgiveness for my involvement in having those guys in the neighborhood.”
Cassidy, Jazzy Joyce, Swizz Beats, and Kurtis Blow were photographed on the set of the new Cassidy video ‘B-Boy Stance’, shot in Brooklyn, New York.
