LAS VEGAS — Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is due to take a plea deal in Las Vegas to avoid trial on felony allegations that he battered his ex-girlfriend.
The 34-year-old Mayweather is expected to plead guilty Wednesday in Las Vegas Justice Court to misdemeanor battery domestic violence and harassment charges.
An aide to Clark County District Attorney says Mayweather could be sentenced to $3,000 in fines and between two days and 18 months in the Clark County jail.
The plea deal avoids an evidentiary hearing on felony grand larceny, coercion and robbery charges, plus misdemeanor domestic battery and harassment charges in a September 2010 argument involving his ex-girlfriend and two of their children.
The undefeated prizefighter could have faced 34 years in state prison if he was convicted of all charges.
