In September 2010, the mother of Mayweather’s children accused him of hitting her “multiple times in the head with his fist” before threatening to kill her. Mayweather pled guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence to get out of the more serious consequences of a felony battery charge. He also pled no contest to two misdemeanor harassment charges after allegedly threatening to beat his kids as well.
In January, Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa allowed Mayweather to remain free long enough to fight Miguel Cotto on May 5.
The Associated Press reports:
Mayweather will be housed in a standard administrative segregation cell no larger than 7-by-12 feet, with a bunk, stainless steel toilet and sink, a steel and wood desk with a permanently bolted stool and two small vertical windows with opaque safety glass.
Mayweather could have about an hour a day out of his cell with access to an exercise yard. Depending on his behavior, the boxer could later get several hours a day for exercise with other inmates also being held in protective custody.
He’ll get a standard-issue blue jail jumpsuit with the letters CCDC and orange slippers.
Mayweather will be able to deposit money into a jail account to purchase snacks, soap and personal hygiene items from the jail commissary.
Mayweather is expected to complete 100 hours of community service, attend a 12-month domestic violence program and pay a fine of $2,500.
