A$AP Rocky took to Instagram last night to share his feelings on yesterday’s court case verdict, which saw him found guilty of assault on 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari after more than a month of investigation in Stockholm, Sweden.

Rocky will not serve any additional jail time, but he is now on two-year probation and must pay the victim 12,500 Swedish kronor (approximately $1,300), a fine he’ll split with the two associates who were also convicted.

In his Instagram post, the 30-year-old rapper said he was disappointed about the verdict but wanted to thank his supporters nonetheless. He described those standing behind him as “advocating for justice.” Read the post in full below.

The court judge rejected Rocky’s claim that the altercation with Jafari had been in self-defense. There was no proof found, however, that Rocky had used a bottle in the attack, a claim that had been central in the prosecutor’s case.
