Akon To Stand Trial
The RnB star is accused of assaulting a minor
Akon is set to stand trial accused of assaulting a 15 year old boy at one of his concerts.
The incident happened when the singer played a gig in Fishkill Town, NY in June and was apparently annoyed by a fan.
After something was thrown on stage Akon allegedly picked up the young lad and threw him into the crowd.
Now a judge has ordered the Locked Up singer to stand trial from December 1 on the assault charges.
If convicted Akon could be jailed for over a year although his attorney is reportedly seeking a settlement deal.
He is also facing a civil lawsuit from a girl who was hurt when the 15 year old boy landed on her!
