Roger Mayweather Accepts Plea Deal in Melissa St. Vil Battery Case..No Jail Time

One of the theories that has been floated around was that Floyd Mayweather didn’t want to fight Manny Pacquiao without his uncle who is also his trainer Roger in his corner.

Roger Mayweather had been accused of strangling female boxer Melissa St. Vil and it put his availability in doubt.

Mayweather is a lucky man today as he accepts a plea deal that doesn’t include any jail time.

Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s uncle and trainer pleaded no contest Thursday to two misdemeanor battery charges in a plea deal that avoided a trial and jail time in a Las Vegas domestic battery case.

Roger Mayweather, 49, was sentenced to a year of probation, 24 weeks of domestic violence counseling, 50 hours of community service and a $1,000 fine for the Aug. 2, 2009, incident.

Trial had been set to begin Monday on felony battery charges alleging Mayweather beat and choked a female boxer he used to train at a Las Vegas apartment that he owned. Mayweather could have faced up to 10 years if convicted of the battery-strangulation and battery causing substantial bodily harm charges.

This all happened before Floyd Mayweather got into his legal troubles (must run in the family), but it does clear one hurdle in a potential mega fight between Mayweather Jr and Pacquiao.

I still believe the percentages are low that fight ever takes place, but a person can dream.

Off topic Miss. St. Vil is definitely “in shape”.

    I initially moved to South Florida 5 year or soes ago (2007). I settled down here for about 9 months at that time and journeyed to ramble around the country. Inside a year of deserting I decided to come back for good, it was the fishing that called me back. Right now there is nothing like it, if you have never fished South Florida then you are missing out– that simple.

  4. I am extremely impressed together with your writing abilities as well as with the layout on your blog. Is that this a paid subject or did you modify it yourself? Either way stay up the excellent high quality writing, it’s uncommon to see a nice blog like this one nowadays..

  5. This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
