Randy Travis Reaches Plea Deal In Assault Case
Randy Travis has reached a plea deal in his assault case. Fort Worth's CBS 11 News says the country star was allowed to enter a plea of no contest or guilty, and received 90 days deferred adjudication, which means that provided Travis meets specific legal requirements over the next three months the case will be dismissed or he won't receive a formal conviction. Travis' lawyer Larry Friedman adds that his client "expects a trouble free 2013 devoted to his very supportive fans and friends."
The case stems from a dust-up involving Randy and his girlfriend's estranged husband last August. At a hearing last month the singer pled not guilty to the charge of simple assault, and at the time his attorney was saying that Travis was the victim. Travis also still has a DWI charge pending relating to a single car crash in North Texas just a few weeks before the altercation.
