Former Los Angeles Dodgers star Milton Bradley was sentenced to more than two years in jail for abusing and threatening his estranged wife.
Bradley was found guilty by a jury last month on nine counts: four of spousal battery, two of criminal threats, one of assault with a deadly weapon, one of vandalism and one of brandishing a deadly weapon.
On Tuesday, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Thomas Rubinson sentenced Bradley to two years, eight months in county jail. He also was ordered to perform 400 hours of community service, half of which will be spent with underprivileged youth in a baseball league. He will be placed on five years’ probation and must complete a year of domestic violence counseling and an anger management program.
Bradley is appealing the sentence and remains free on $250,000 bond. He’s scheduled to return to court next month.
Prosecutors said Bradley threatened and attacked his wife, Monique Bradley, five times in 2011 and 2012. In one incident, Bradley pushed his wife against a wall and choked her after she asked him to stop smoking marijuana in front of their children and wanted his friends to leave their home, authorities said.
Bradley and his wife have been married for five years and have two children together. They are separated and in the middle of a divorce. Bradley’s wife has a restraining order against him. The court also ordered Bradley to stay away from his estranged wife and her parents.
Bradley played 11 years with the Dodgers, Montreal Expos, Cleveland Indians, Oakland Athletics, San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs and Seattle Mariners.
