Jeff Taylor has been sentenced to 18 months probation in connection with a domestic violence conviction.
Television news station WILX reported that as a part of the probation Taylor must complete 26 weeks in a batterer’s intervention program. He must also enter an outpatient alcohol treatment program and perform self-tests for alcohol use several times a day.
On Wednesday, Taylor, 25, pleaded guilty in East Lansing, Mich., to the domestic violence charge and to malicious destruction of property, also a misdemeanor.
An NBA spokesman told the Observer on Wednesday that the league’s investigation is continuing.
Court documents indicated Taylor and prosecutors struck a deal Tuesday. A charge of assault and battery against a hotel employee was dropped as part of the plea deal.
Taylor said in court that he pushed his girlfriend into a wall at the Marriott Hotel in East Lansing, and the hotel room wall was damaged, the station reported.
