At this point they will only put former ESPN analyst Jay Mariotti in jail if he stabs someone and even then I am not sure.  He was able to plead to another deal after violating his original plea deal less than 24 hours after it was issued.

Deadspin has the details.

All had been quiet (for once) on the Jay Mariotti front since late June, when a California judge ordered him to stand trial on assault, domestic violence, and stalking charges stemming from an incident in which he had allegedly pulled out his ex-girlfriend’s hair extensions.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Mariotti was willing to enter the plea in exchange for having all five counts reduced to misdemeanors, thus allowing him to avoid going to prison. He was instead sentenced to a year of counseling, 90 days of community service and five years of probation that can be reduced after three years.

His lawyer was quick to point out that Mariotti’s no-contest plea was in no way an admission of guilt, which is true, at least in legalese. But lawyer added that Mariotti avoided going to trial to make his case because—ready for this?—”the fact that he is an accomplished writer provided him another avenue, in this case a book, to tell his side in an unconventional but progressive manner.”


He gets a deal because he is writing a book?

Our Justice System fails again like Romo in the 4th quarter.

    My spouse and i have been so contented that Michael could deal with his studies via the precious recommendations he was given when using the site. It’s not at all simplistic just to always be giving for free facts which usually others could have been making money from. And we fully grasp we have the website owner to give thanks to for that. The explanations you’ve made, the simple blog menu, the relationships you will aid to instill it’s all fantastic, and it’s helping our son and us do think that theme is brilliant, which is particularly indispensable. Many thanks for all!
