Miles Bridges reaches an agreement with the Prosecutor’s Office to avoid jail – Basketball

Los Angeles (USA), Nov 3 (EFE) .- NBA player Miles Bridges reached an agreement this Thursday with the Los Angeles County Prosecutor’s Office (USA) to avoid jail for the accusations against sexist violence and child abuse.

Bridges, who played for the Charlotte Hornets the last four seasons, will have to serve three years of probation and, with the agreement reached, he accepted his sentence without pleading guilty in this trial.

“We believe that this resolution was the best way to hold Mr. Bridges accountable for his conduct,” the Los Angeles prosecutor’s office said in a statement picked up by US media.

“We also understand, through her representatives, that the victim wanted a quick resolution of the case. The victim and her representatives were consulted about this proposed resolution and agreed with the outcome of the case,” they added.

The player was accused in July of three crimes of sexist violence and child abuse.

George Gascón, who is in charge of the Angeleno County Prosecutor’s Office, assured in a statement that this type of violence “creates physical, mental and emotional trauma that has a lasting impact on survivors.”

On June 29, Bridges was arrested in Los Angeles (USA) for an alleged assault on his girlfriend with his two children present.

He was later released after the judge set bail at $130,000.

Bridges, who was the Hornets’ leading scorer last season, averaged 20.2 points, 7 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game.

He is currently a restricted free agent and his future in the NBA is in question.
