Big Sean has been cleared of sexual assault charges
stemming from an incident earlier this year in Buffalo, New York.
Third-degree sex abuse and forcible touching charges against the rapper,
born Sean Anderson, have been dropped as part of a plea deal for a
misdemeanor count of unlawful imprisonment. Anderson had been accused of
harassing a 17-year-old girl at a concert along with Willie Antonio
"Sayitainttone" Hansbro, who accepted the same plea deal.

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," the rapper's lawyer Scott Leemon said in a statement to
"Mr. Anderson regrets any misunderstandings that occurred that day and
reiterates he did not engage in any type of sexual misconduct."
