Back In February, Josh Copeland was arrested and charged with assault after he was accused of punching his wife so hard in the face that she was left bloodied and bruised. In the original report, his wife admitted to slapping him a couple of times before he eventually fought back, leading to the arrest. She also accused him of stealing her phone so that she couldn’t call anyone for help.
At the time, Copeland got hit with four criminal charges including felony assault, domestic violence, obstruction of telephone and child abuse, according to TMZ. The child abuse charge was filed because the alleged incident took place in front of their young son.
Now, it appears as though Copeland has struck a deal in his case as he plead guilty to 2nd and 3rd-degree assault. Thanks to his guilty plea, the other charges surrounding the case have been dropped. Copeland will now be on probation for two years and will have to keep his nose clean if he wants to avoid any jail time.
Considering Copeland’s profession, he will be allowed to travel, although in 2021 he will have a meeting with the judge to make sure he’s been good during his probation.
