LAS VEGAS (AP) — Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been sentenced to 90 days in jail after pleading guilty to reduced battery domestic violence and harassment charges before a Las Vegas judge.
Judge Melissa Saragosa also ordered the 34-year-old Mayweather on Wednesday to complete 100 hours of community service and pay a $2,500 fine.
The plea deal avoids trial on felony allegations that he hit his ex-girlfriend and threatened two of their children during an argument at her home in September 2010.
Prosecutor Lisa Luzaich told the judge Mayweather has been in trouble before and hasn’t been punished.
Attorney Karen Winckler had argued that the public would benefit more if Mayweather performs 100 hours of community service with children.
She says she’s considering an appeal.
Mayweather was told to report to jail Jan. 6.
