R&B star Akon will have a few more weeks to wait before his court hearing for alleged misdemeanour endangerment and harassment charges begins.
The "Smack That" singer was accused of endangering the welfare of a minor and second-degree harassment following an incident while performing in New York in June of 2007. It is alleged a fan threw an object at the star, which encouraged him to retaliate by picking the young fan up and throwing his from the stage. He pleaded not guilty to the charges last December.
Akon - born Aliuane Badara Thiam - was due in court today but, the court date has now been delayed until August. The alleged victim's mother, Patricia Smith called the hearing "pretty typical."
"People can just hang in there long enough until the case goes in their favor," she said in reference to the trial set back.
Akon could face one year and 15 days in jail if convicted.
