American TV presenter/producer Don Cornelius has been sentenced to three years' probation after entering a no contest plea on misdemeanour spousal battery charges.
The 72-year-old former Soul Train host/creator was arrested last October (09) after police were called to his Hollywood home to deal with a domestic incident involving his wife Viktoria.
He was charged in November (08) on three counts; spousal battery, one of dissuading a witness from filing a police report and one count of assault with a deadly weapon.
According to court documents, Cornelius' legals entered the no contest plea on his behalf on Wednesday (19Mar09).
At a court appearance in December (08) he had pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
The remaining misdemeanours are included in plea agreement. He must also attend a domestic violence course.
It is not know if the two-restraining orders Viktoria took out against the star in 2008 still stand.
