Mayweather Lands 90 Day Prison Sentence Over Domestic Violence Conviction

Floyd Mayweather has been sentenced to 90 days in prison after agreeing to a plea deal for misdemeanor domestic violence.

Floyd Mayweather has been sentenced to 90 days in prison after agreeing to a plea deal for misdemeanor domestic violence.

The charges stem from a September 2010 incident where the mother of Mayweather two son’s, Josie Harris, claimed he hit her multiple times and threatened their children. Originally, Mayweather faced over 20 years in prison for felony battery and harassment charges.

Under the plea deal, Mayweather was fined $2500, must complete 100 hours of community service and a 12-month domestic violence program. An initial six-month prison sentence was suspended three months and three days for time already served.

Mayweather’s scheduled May 5 in-ring return for a possible megafight with Manny Pacquiao is now compromised, as Mayweather must turn himself in by January 6.
