Miles Bridges reportedly won't serve jail time, pleads no contest to domestic violence

Former Michigan State basketball star Miles Bridges pleaded no contest to a felony domestic violence charge in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday and was sentenced to three years of probation, according to ESPN.

Bridges, 24, turned himself in to authorities in June and was arrested after a physical altercation with his wife. The woman later shared several photos of herself after the assault and wrote that the violence occurred in front of their children.

Two other felony charges of child abuse under circumstances or conditions likely to cause great bodily injury or death were dismissed.

According to the report, the victim was consulted about the plea deal and agreed to it.

Bridges pleaded not guilty to three felony domestic charges in July, just as his NBA free agency fate was likely about to be decided. He remains a restricted free agent with the Charlotte Hornets but has not been signed to a new contract for this season. The Hornets extended Bridges a $7.9 million qualifying offer though it reportedly expired last month.

Among the conditions of the deal, Bridges must complete 52 weeks of both domestic violence counseling and parenting classes and undergo weekly narcotics testing, with marijuana allowed only per doctor's orders. According to the report, Bridges must also adhere to a 10-year protective order; he and the victim maintain custody of their two children and any visiting or exchange of the children must be civil or done with a third party.

ESPN reports that once Bridges signs with a team, he is subject a suspension, fine or any other punish since he pleaded no contest.
