Former MLB outfielder guilty of spousal battery

On Monday, June 3, a Los Angeles jury convicted former Major League Baseball outfielder Milton Bradley of domestic violence and spousal abuse. He is now facing up to 7 ½ years in jail, which starts on July 2.

Los Angeles city attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan said 35-year-old Bradley was found guilty of nine misdemeanor counts, including four counts of spousal battery, one count of assault with a deadly weapon, and one count of making criminal threats after a four-week trial period.

City attorney Carmen Trutanich said in a statement, “Domestic violence will not be tolerated, regardless of perceived celebrity or notoriety, and violators will be held fully accountable for their actions.”

Bradley’s wife testified to having been choked and slammed against the wall by him after she told him and his friends to leave their house and stop smoking marijuana in front of their children.
