Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson was sentenced to one year’s probation and a counseling course Friday morning after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor battery charge involving his now-ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada. Do you think he deserved more? Leave us your thoughts!
Chad Johnson will NOT spend a day in jail for allegedly headbutting his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada last month. Chad was sentenced this morning. Chad was in court this morning for his sentencing, where he pled “no contest” to a charge of domestic battery, stemming from the violent August 11th argument with Lozada over a condom receipt. In exchange for the plea, Chad escaped a jail sentence, but was sentenced to 12 months probation and ordered to enroll in a batterers intervention program. The judge also issued a no-contact order for the duration of his probation, blocking Chad from contacting Evelyn in any way, which means – no email, no Twitter, facebook, smoke signals, NOTHING! Chad was also ordered to pay restitution, but the amount won’t be determined until next week.
In related news, earlier this week Chad Johnson revealed that he enrolled in anger management classes to learn how to suppress his rage so he doesn’t involve himself in another violent altercation. He made the announcement during an interview with James Brown on “Inside the NFL”. See Video Here
