Big Sean Cleared Of Sexual Abuse Charges

Rapper was arrested in August when a woman filed a complaint against him after a concert.

In August, Big Sean was arrested and charged with sexual abuse when a woman filed a complaint against the rapper after a concert in Lewiston, New York, but on Wednesday (October 26), XXLMag.com reported that Sean is off the hook after he pleaded guilty to a lesser charged and paid a $750 fine.

Both Sean (real name: Sean Anderson) and fellow Detroit MC Willie "Say It Ain't Tone" Hansbro were charged with forcible touching, unlawful imprisonment in the second degree and sex abuse in the third degree following a concert where the G.O.O.D. Music star opened up for Wiz Khalifa. At the time of the arrest, Sean's lawyer, Scott Leemon, issued a statement that said, "I am confident, that after further investigation, both men will be vindicated."

While the two rappers weren't completely vindicated, they are in the clear. "I am pleased to announce that after further investigation the Niagara County District Attorney's Office decided not to pursue any of the sexual misconduct allegations against Mr. Anderson," Leemon told XXLMag.com. "As a result in order to get this entire ordeal behind him Mr. Anderson agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of unlawful imprisonment with a $750 fine. Mr. Anderson regrets any misunderstandings that occurred that day and reiterates he did not engage in any type of sexual misconduct."

MTV News reached out to Big Sean's label rep, who chose not to comment on this story.
