Miles Bridges pleads no contest to felony domestic violence charge, receives no jail time
NEWS: Hornets restricted free agent Miles Bridges pleaded no contest to a felony domestic violence charge Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court and will face three years of probation and no jail time as part of a deal with prosecutors. ESPN story: https://t.co/WYvFuSbX3M
According to former Boston Celtics reporter Baxter Holmes now of ESPN, "The no-contest plea means Bridges, who was present in court, is accepting the punishment and the conviction without formally admitting guilt in the case." So Bridges' attorney got him a plaea deal where he didn't need to admit guilt and received no jail time.
At the moment, Bridges remains unsigned, but, if he were to sign with a team, the NBA, under the collective bargaining agreement, has the right to suspend, fine, dismiss or disqualify him from any further association from the league because he pleaded no contest.
