Chad Johnson had to appear in a FL courtroom today for the domestic battery charge against him. Johnson pleaded, ‘no contest’ to headbutting his wife at the time, Evelyn Lozada. He will spend no time in jail but he will receive counseling and 12 months probation, he has already signed up for anger management classes.
It’s official … Chad Johnson will NOT spend a day in jail for allegedly headbutting his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada last month — but he will be spending a lot of time in counseling.
Chad showed up to a Florida courtroom for his sentencing this morning, 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 — no email, no Twitter, no nothing.
Chad was also ordered to pay restitution — but the amount won’t be determined ’til next week.
