A three-year probationary term is also imposed on Lee Mouat. 

It has been announced that Lee James Mouat was sentenced to prison for attacking a Black teen. Earlier this week (July 8), a U.S. According to a District Court judge, the white 43-year-old defendant will serve five years in prison and three years of probation. 

Last June, Lee Mouat observed Devin Freelon and some friends at Sterling State Park in Detroit playing loud music and confronted them about the volume. Racial slurs were thrown, for example, “Black lives don’t matter” and “Ni**ers don’t belong on this beach,” then he left the premises, later returning with a bike lock to attack Freelon. 

In the course of the attack, he knocked out three of the teenager’s teeth before hitting one of his friends. The young man also suffered a broken jaw and injuries to his face and mouth in addition to his missing teeth. Several dental procedures were carried out in the local hospital following his treatment of cuts. 

The difficulty of seeing your son every day without teeth, especially when he is only 19 years old, Devin Freelon Sr. previously told NBC affiliate WDIV-TV. It’s something that no one should experience. 

Lee Mouat admitted to being motivated by race when he committed an act of bodily harm against a victim in March and pleaded guilty to willful causing bodily injury. According to the plea deal terms, the 43-year-old was initially facing up to ten years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. As a result of his sentencing announcement, he learned that he would serve half of his time in prison. 

Deputy U.S. Attorney Saima Mohsin called Lee Mouat’s behavior “disturbing” for his cowardly and unprovoked attack on the victim. The right of every citizen to live without fear of violence or attack based solely upon his or her skin color must be taken seriously.”

SZA

You can now purchase NFTs of her epic “UNSTAGED” show from mid-June. 

SZA has partnered with American Express to issue a set of exclusive non-fungible tokens (NFTs). She received the NFTs for her “UNSTAGED” performance at Amex and for the release of her debut studio album Ctrl four years ago. 

There are now NFTs available from her epic virtual “UNSTAGED” show from June. With this exclusive collection, SZA’s first fans will be able to see behind-the-scenes photos and highlights of her live performance they were not able to see during the live stream. The Grammy-nominated artist performed most of her Grammy-nominated album Ctrl onstage, but only the best moments were made digital, such as Kiss Me More, All The Stars, Hit Different, Pretty Little Birds, “20 Something,” and “Good Days.” SZA’s virtual concert was her first complete set in two years. 

Currently, if you’re an Amex cardholder, NFTs are available from the NFT marketplace Fanaply. A $100 piece is included in each delivery, which arrived this past Friday (July 9) for those who attended the “UNSTAGED” event. Additional episodes will be released on July 12 on the show’s website. 

During an interview with Complex before her UNSTAGED show, SZA described how it felt like returning to the stage and performing again for her fans. I can’t wait to get back there again, feel the excitement in their voices, and engage them again. My world is weird when I sing songs I haven’t heard in a billion years because I don’t listen to my own music much,” she said. “I only listened to my album on the third anniversary last year. This year I didn’t do so. It feels strange. I’m unfamiliar with it, but familiarizing myself with it.” 

Performing songs she created four years ago is also “emotional” for the New Jersey native. “I never imagined that the album would be this powerful – or as powerful – as it was,” she said. “I’m learning every day what this means to other people. I usually feel astonished and more confused than anything else. I can’t believe it’s taken me up to this point, and it’s still not something that I feel ashamed of. This is something that I am especially grateful for because it’s not something that happens that often.”

Dame Dash can tell his love story how he wants, in his new reality series

DAME DASH CAN TELL HIS LOVE STORY HOW HE WANTS, IN HIS NEW REALITY SERIES

DAME DASH

Dame Dash can tell his love story how he wants, in his new reality series. 

A show named “In Love For A Living” is airing on the network. 

Hip hop mogul Damon Dash will produce a reality series of his own. “In Love For A Living” places the Dash family on a global television platform. 

It will take viewers into the Dame Dash home where they juggle parenting with running Damon Dash Studios (DDS) and managing other business ventures. Horne’s experiences with in vitro fertilization (IVF) will be discussed, as well as Dash’s health challenges. 

Several of my shows have aired. Because the Narrator portrays me and our relationship in such a horrific way, I wanted to show what an amazing relationship is instead of focusing solely on the trauma and the dysfunction of our culture,” Dame Dash told Deadline. “I wanted to show how people can thrive in their relationships.” 

Dash went on to explain, “‘In Love for a Living’ is kind of a love story about Raquel and me and all the trials that we go through together. It’s also sort of educational,” he explained. “We have covered a variety of topics that pertain to getting pregnant, IVF, and after having your baby, raising that child, or at least what we have been doing for him, as we have been shaping a curriculum based on these principles for him.” 

It stands to reason that, as the owner of a television network and a streaming service, Dash would make his own shows.
