Floyd Mayweather Begins Jail Stint For Domestic Abuse

by at . Comments

On Friday, boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. begins a three-month jail sentence in Las Vegas, Nev., for his recent domestic violence conviction.

The undefeated boxer's legal and ring advisers weren't immediately commenting about Mayweather's scheduled Friday morning surrender in court.

Mayweather's conviction stems from a hair-pulling, arm-twisting attack on Josie Harris, the mother of three of his children, in September 2010.

Mayweather, whose arrest wasn't his last, pleaded guilty last December to reduced charges in the altercation with Josie Harris while their two sons watched.

In January, Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa agreed to let Mayweather remain free long enough to fight Miguel Cotto on May 5 at the MGM Grand hotel.

Mayweather won the bout. Harris' lawyer isn't commenting on Mayweather's scheduled surrender. Harris and the children now live in Southern California.

Hopefully the time in jail gives Floyd time to reflect, allowing him to return with a renewed sense of purpose and fresh excuses for not fighting Manny Pacquiao.

Any fella that violently puts his hands on a woman is a TRIPLE C in my book (a creep, a chump and most of all a COWARD!!!!!). YO Mayweather...I hope you "ENJOY" being somebody's BITCH in jail!!!!! Asshole.

Why am i not surprised? Spousal abuse? Physical violence on a woman -not to mention she's the mother of his children, shows that floyd's just a coward . People looking forward to a manny-floyd showdown don't get your hopes up, floyd knows deep inside he aint going to beat a slugger like pacqiao; he will do better retiring 'undefeated'. That ought to satisfy that despicable, coward of a champion-a title he will never deserve in my honest opinion.

It is widely known that spousal abuse doesn't normally end up with the perpetrator in jail for any time at all ! . . Only after a few repeat performances does a court see fit to take them off the street and out of the home for a little while ! . . Maybe it's time to alter the laws concerning domestic abuse and make it mandatory minimum of 30 days for the first offense and that might possibly cut down on some of the violent behavior, especially in the presence of children of any age. . . A ball bat up-side the head might curtail it somewhat as well. . . .

Can't believe they let someone beat their wife and terrorize their children while doing so and only give them 3 months incarceration. That's why so many spouses (and sometimes children) eventually end up dead - because they aren't REALLY protected from beasts like this to begin with.
