Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr Guilty 90 Days Jail

Undefeated prizefighter Floyd “Money” Mayweather copped a plea deal accepting a 90 day jail sentence rather than a trial on felony grand larceny, coercion and robbery charges.

The 5 division, 7 world title champion boxer also avoids domestic battery and harassment counts [hit and threatened] his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris during a September 2010 argument about the woman dating another man.

” The punishment is appropriate. No matter who you are, you have consequences to your actions when they escalate to this level of violence.” – Melissa Saragosa, Justice of the Peace

Had “Money” been convicted of all charges the twice former Fighter of the Year could have faced 34 years in state prison.

It was a good move.
