Lil Twist Sentenced to One Year in Jail for Assault

“It’s over but not really,” Twist tweeted after court. “God got me!!”

Rapper Lil Twist (legal name Christopher Lynn Moore) was sentenced to one year in jail and three years of probation for assaulting Nickelodeon actor Christopher Massey with brass knuckles during a robbery. Moore plead no contest to the charges, and entered a plea deal despite L.A. county prosecutors’ insistence that no such deal should occur.

“It was not a negotiated plea,” DA spokesman Ricardo Santiago told The New York Daily News.

The November 7 incident occurred at the home of Massey’s younger brother Kyle (also a Nickelodeon actor). Prosecutors claimed that after Moore was told to leave a party, he returned with four associates, “jumped” Christopher and stole his Rolex watch.

The charges totaled six felony counts including first-degree residential burglary, assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury, assault with a deadly weapon, grand theft and first-degree robbery.

Moore will report to the authorities on February 3, according to TMZ. He could be released as soon as August if he exhibits good behavior behind bars.

“It’s over but not really,” Moore tweeted after court. “God got me!!”
