LEWISTON, N.Y. (AP) -- Rapper Big Sean has pleaded guilty to a
misdemeanor charge of unlawful imprisonment stemming from a
backstage incident at an upstate New York concert over the summer.
The Niagara Gazette (http://bit.ly/vL1z1J ) reports that the Detroit rapper, whose real name is Sean Anderson, entered the plea Wednesday as part of an agreement with Niagara County prosecutors.
A co-defendant, Willie Hansbro, also pleaded guilty.
The two were charged in August with forcible touching, unlawful
imprisonment and sex abuse after a 17-year-old told police she was
sexually assaulted during a concert. Authorities didn't release details.
Prosecutors say the victim agreed to the plea deals.
Anderson didn't comment after entering his plea and paying a $750 fine. His lawyer, Scott Leemon, says the rapper denies there was any sexual misconduct.
