21 Savage Avoids Prosecution for Allegations of Felony Theft

The charge against the 'Bank Account' hitmaker stemming from accusation of theft by deception filed in 2016 has been dropped by prosecutors at the Liberty County District Attorney's Office.

AceShowbiz - Rapper 21 Savage has escaped prosecution for allegations of felony theft after authorities rejected the case.

The British national, real name She'yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, hit headlines last month after the "Bank Account" hitmaker was arrested in Atlanta, Georgia for violating the terms of his non-immigrant visa.

He was released from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention after 10 days, but faced legal trouble once more as it was revealed a warrant had been issued for his arrest linked to a 2016 theft by deception case.

21 Savage was accused of walking away from a gig in Georgia with his advance and full fee - amounting to $17,000 (£12,900) - without performing.

The promoter filed a police report in October, 2016, but no further action was taken until his run-in with ICE officials.

At the time, Savage's lawyer insisted his client was innocent of theft, stating, "Mr. Joseph has committed no criminal offence. We look forward to an amicable resolution between the parties in the near future with no criminal implications whatsoever."

Now it seems their wish has been granted - prosecutors at the Liberty County District Attorney's Office have decided against pursuing the dispute, and the charge has officially been dropped, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
