A former Disney child actor will spend a year in jail after pleading no contest to domestic violence charges. In addition to jail time, the man will also spend five years on formal probation. He is also expected to complete a 52-week domestic violence class and an outpatient alcohol treatment program. The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office prosecuted the case.
Last November, the 27-year-old actor allegedly attacked his girlfriend, leaving her hospitalized with a concussion. He left the scene before the police arrived, but officers arrested the man two days later. This is his second conviction for domestic violence. He pleaded no contest to a single count of spousal battery in 2018 for an incident that occurred in 2017.
According to the actor’s profile on IMDB, he began working when he was 12 and is still active.
