Glory Johnson Accused Of Ignoring Terms Of Her Plea Deal For Fight With Brittney Griner
The WNBA’s Glory Johnson is likely breathing a sigh of relief this weekend after she narrowly escaped jail for violating the terms of her plea deal for a fight with ex-Brittney Griner.
Johnson was in an Arizona court Wednesday to face the judge after she skipped out on the court-ordered domestic violence prevention classes that she was supposed to complete as part of her plea deal for brawling with her now ex-wife Brittney Griner.
Johnson pled guilty in 2015 to disorderly conduct (domestic violence) stemming from a brawl with her then fiance, Brittney Griner. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss her assault charge as part of a plea deal.
Under the deal, Johnson was ordered to pay a $236 fine and attend six months of domestic violence counseling. However, a judge found that Johnson ignored her sentence and he issued the warrant, according to court docs.
However, at the hearing Wednesday, Johnson’s legal team provided proof that Johnson had indeed took the 26 week course, so prosecutors filed a motion that Johnson had indeed completed the domestic violence prevention classes.
It wasn’t clear why Johnson decided not to attend the classes in the first place. We’ve reached out her lawyer for comment.
Despite the brawl, Griner and Johnson married in 2015, but split up less than a year later. The pair share year-old twins Ava Simone and Solei Diem.
