Rob Kardashian
has settled with the photog who accused him of robbery — stealing her camera equipment — and this will almost certainly mean the end of the criminal case against Rob.

Sources familiar with the situation tell our sources … Rob has agreed to pay Andra Viak the value of the camera equipment. 

our sources broke the story … Viak was waiting for Rob in the parking garage at a West Hollywood gym in March and when Rob started taking his clothes off she started taking pics.  Rob then grabbed her camera”s memory card and kept it.

Prosecutors charged Rob with battery and petty theft.  There was a hearing in court today and the lawyers told the judge a civil settlement had been reached.

Our sources say Viak is now satisfied and doesn”t want to pursue the criminal case.  It”s pretty much a formality that the judge will end the matter without prosecution.
