Former Hornets Player Miles Bridges Accepts Plea Deal Over Domestic Violence Charge, Will Not Face J
Former Charlotte Hornets player Miles Bridges pleaded no contest to felony domestic violence charges after reaching an agreement with prosecutors.
On Thursday, Bridges entered a no-contest plea to one felony count of injuring a child's parent. The ball player was arrested back in June by Los Angeles police after being accused of assaulting his then-girlfriend in front of their two children in May.
In exchange for his cooperation, the charges of child abuse under circumstances or conditions likely to cause significant bodily injury or death were dropped. He was also cleared of "an allegation of causing great bodily injury on the domestic violence victim."
He is expected to complete 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling and parenting classes and perform 100 hours of community service during his three-year probationary period.
Additionally, Bridges is prohibited from possessing any weapons, and he must abide by a 10-year protective order that pertains to the woman in the case.
With this arrangement, Bridges accepts the penalty but does not openly confess guilt.
"We believe this resolution was the best avenue to hold Mr. Bridges accountable for his conduct," said the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. "We also understand through the victim's representatives that the victim wanted an expedited resolution of the case. The victim and her representatives were consulted about the proposed resolution and agreed with the outcome of the case."
