Well, first came the arrest, then came the denial, and now here is the plea.Hayden Panettiere’s father, Alan Panettiere, pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery charges in a Beverly Hills court today.
Alan received 24 months probation, $400 in fines, and he must attend 52 weeks domestic violence counseling.
Hayden’s mother still has a protective order in place against him.
All the counseling in the world is unlikely to be effective if he won’t listen, but maybe this will be a wake-up call.
Hopefully everyone will stay safe.
