Milton Bradley to serve jail time
It was sentencing day in former Major League Baseball outfielder Milton Bradley domestic abuse case. Bradley was accused of threatening and attacking his wife five times in 2011 & 2012. Milton could have faced seven plus years after he was found guilty of nine misdemeanor counts, including four counts of spousal battery, one count of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of making criminal threats. He got off light but will be forced to serve two and a half years in jail.
Former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Milton Bradley was sentenced Tuesday to more than 2 1/2 years in jail for abusing and threatening his estranged wife.
Bradley, 35, also was ordered to perform 400 hours of community service, half of which will be spent with underprivileged youth in a baseball league. He also will be placed on five years’ probation and must complete a year of domestic violence counseling and an anger management program. (AP via Cleveland.com)
Bradley is currently appealing the sentence and will remain free on a $250,000 bond. He’ll have to return to court next month.
I’m thinking his appeal will fail as he already got a pretty light sentence for what prosecutors accused him of and proved that he did.
