    UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich’s ex-husband Arnold Berdon has been sentenced to four years of probation for his involvement in a November 2018 domestic violence case, per the Associated Press.

    The verdict was handed down in a Honolulu court Thursday. Berdon previously pleaded no conteston March 14 to second-degree assault charge, which is considered a conviction. However, the charge is considerably different from the attempted murder charge for which Berdon, also a professional MMA fighter, was initially arrested on Nov. 20, 2018, after allegations arose that Berdon violently assaulted Ostovich and had abused her in the past.

    Ostovich testified in court on Thursday, saying “I do have the power to move forward, walking in forgiveness and I have.” She did not ask for additional jail time outside of the two days Berdon served, according to Berdon’s defense attorney Myles Breiner.

    Deputy Honolulu prosecuting attorney Robert Rawson was seeking a five-year prison sentence for Berdon.

    “This wasn’t a single act, it wasn’t a single punch,” Rawson said. “This was a sustained brutal assault. For nearly 10 minutes, the defendant assaulted the victim while she begged for him to stop.” Portions of the alleged incident had been recorded on a cell phone and were later made public by Hawaii News Now.

    Sounds like he only got probation, which is pretty messed up if that’s the case.

    Good catch. Amended the thread title accordingly.

    And, yes, that's some bullshit sentencing.

    So you can beat a woman and just get probation but if you are caught with drugs, mandatory jail time...[​IMG]

    According to the article it sounds like it was due to her testimony.
