Charlotte Hornets restricted free agent Miles Bridges will not face jail time after he pleaded no contest to a felony domestic violence charge Thursday.
Bridges was sentenced to three years probation when he appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court. The no-contest plea means Bridges accepts the punishment and conviction without formally admitting guilt.
Bridges was accused of assaulting his then-girlfriend in the presence of their two children in May.
