The last time we reported on Fabolous, we shared that the rapper had turned down a plea deal and was going to take his chances in trial.

But according to Bossip, the rapper is set to plead guilty in hopes of getting a deal that will keep him out of prison.

The 41-year-old rapper, John Jackson, appeared in Bergen County Superior Court on January 28th with his lawyer Brian Neary to confirm the deal. Neary asked for more time to iron out the details of the deal. As it stands now, Fab would plea to one count of felony brandishing and threatening a domestic violence victim with scissors. But it’s not clear what the new plea would entail.

In exchange for the guilty plea, Fabolous would not serve any jail time. Instead, he would be sentenced to Pre-Trial Intervention which will be a series of domestic violence prevention workshops that will last for six months to a year.

In this time, if he’s able to avoid further violent incidents, all of the charges will be expunged from his criminal record.

This is different from the plea deal that would placed him in a program for firs time offenders.

As we reported earlier, Fabolous is on trial for punching Emily B. so many times that she had to have her teeth medically replaced. And in the video of the two interacting with one another, Fabolous, holding scissors, threatened to kill Emily, her father and brother.

As a result, Fab was charged with four felonies, including aggravated assault of a domestic violence victim. If he were convicted he could face up to 20 years in prison. He pled not guilty in October 2018.

As far as the status of the couple, Emily B. and Fabolous have not broken up. the two have been seen and photographed together. In fact, Emily’s eldest daughter, from a previous relationship, has accompanied her parents to Fabolous’ court hearings.
