Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been sentenced to three months in jail after pleading guilty Wednesday to a charge of misdemeanor battery domestic violence and no contest on two counts of harassment.
Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa also ordered the 34-year-old Mayweather to complete 100 hours of community service and pay a $2,500 fine.
The plea deal avoids an evidentiary hearing on felony grand larceny, coercion and robbery charges, plus misdemeanor domestic battery and harassment charges stemming from a September 2010 argument involving Mayweather’s ex-girlfriend and two of their children.
Mayweather could have faced 34 years in state prison if convicted of all charges.
He will report to jail on Jan. 6.
Prosecutor Lisa Luzaich told the judge Mayweather has been in trouble before and hasn’t been punished.
But defense attorney Karen Winckler argued that the public would benefit more if Mayweather performs 100 hours of community service with children. She said she’s considering an appeal.
Mayweather has also agreed to plead no contest next week to a misdemeanor battery charge stemming from an incident involving a security guard in November 2010, prosecutors said, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
