Yung Gleesh, whose real name is Asa Asuncion, was acquitted of the more serious charge of sexual assault.
He also avoided prison due to the jury recommending he serve his five-year prison sentence on probation.
Conditions of Gleesh’s probation will be announced at a later date by State District Judge David Wahlberg.
The woman said she woke up to see Gleesh having sex with her on a futon in the living room.
Another witness, a friend of the victim, corroborated the story by saying she woke up and saw Gleesh’s exposed genitals.
She claimed Gleesh admitted to performing oral sex.
Gleesh previously denied the allegations in an interview with Vlad TV, which has since been deleted.
He said the sex was consensual.
In court, his lawyers also contended that no sexual assault occurred.
They asserted the only DNA evidence came from their client giving the woman a hickey.
