“We don’t think the indictment changes anything,” says Kern. “We understood it was a possibility. We are under a constitutional obligation to effectively and thoroughly investigate the accuracy of the allegations and we will continue to do so.”
Findling added: “I know Cardi on a personal level. I know her as a mother, as a wife, as a daughter, as a sister and a friend to many. I know her as a caring, loving and kind person which is why I happily accepted her invitation to join her defense team. Along with Cardi, our entire defense team is 100 percent confident this matter will result in a positive outcome for her.”
In October 2018, the star surrendered to police and was subsequently arrested before she was charged with one count of assault and two counts of reckless endangerment.
The charges reportedly stem from an incident that occurred in August, when two bartenders, Baddie Gi and Jade, at Angels Strip Club claimed that Cardi ordered an attack on the women because she believed her husband, Migos rapper Offset, had had an affair with one of them.
