Banks is currently awaiting trial over a 2015 incident in which she bit a female security guard's breast after being thrown out of a night club. Banks is facing assault and harassment charges, and prosecutors are digging deep into the rapper's history to help their case.
During their research, prosecutors discovered and recently disclosed that Banks was arrested in 2009 for slashing her sister in the neck, the arm, and the hand with a box cutter. Banks pleaded guilty to attempted assault but allegedly received special treatment due to her age.
Banks plans to testify in her own defense at her trial; jury selection is scheduled for Wednesday, while Banks could be taking the stand as early as next week.
