Floyd Mayweather Jr sentenced to 90 days in prison

Las Vegas - Unbeaten boxer and current WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr was yesterday sentenced to three months in prison after pleading guilty to domestic violence charges.
As reported on Sporting Life, Las Vegas Judge Melissa Saragosa also ordered Mayweather to complete 100 hours of community service and pay a $2,500 fine.
The 34-year-old, whose sentence will commence on January 6, pleaded guilty to a reduced domestic violence misdemeanor charge and no contest to two harassment misdemeanor charges.
According to the Telegraph, it was 15 months ago when Mayweather hit his ex-girlfriend Josie Harris and threatened two of their children during a heated argument.
Following his arrest in September 2010, Harris accused him of hitting her "multiple times in the head with his fist" before threatening to kill her, TMZ reports.
The argument came after Harris informed Mayweather she was dating another man, police said.
Prosecutor Lisa Luzaich believes the sentence is too light, as Mayweather could have instead been sentenced to 18 months.
"He just continually gets himself into trouble and he is able to get himself out of it as well," she said.
"Essentially it is because he is who he is and is able to get away with everything. The only thing that's going to get this man's attention is incarceration."
Mayweather is scheduled to fight in Las Vegas on May 5 against an unnamed opponent.
