Robert Easter Jr. Found Guilty In Assault Case
Boxing prodigy Robert Easter Jr has changed his plea from Not Guilty to No Contest in an assault charge.
On Wednesday, Toledo Municipal Court’s Judge Michelle Wagner found the boxer guilty on one count of simple assault. Earlier, an arrest warrant was issued for Easter, but he entered a plea of Not Guilty before being released on his recognizance. The court then issued a Temporary Restraining Order against the boxer and the case was sent to trial on August 26.
Court records have indicated that the boxer may need to undergo anger management training. Judge Wagner had referred Easter to probation for pre-sentencing investigation.
When the next court hearing takes place on November 30, Easter is likely to be fined and then given probation, according to the minimum requirements in Ohio law.
The 30-year-old boxer is accused of punching a woman on the left side of her face. The victim was then reportedly left unconscious with a split lip and chipped tooth.
The event went down at Bucks Rack City strip club in Toledo, Easter’s hometown.
Easter hasn’t fought since February 20. In his last fight, he beat Ryan Martin via decision in a ten-round masterclass.
