Marston Hefner Pleads No Contest in Attack on Claire Sinclair

by at . Comments

Hugh Hefner's son Marston has entered a plea of no contest in the alleged beating of Claire Sinclair, his girlfriend and the Playmate of the Year, earlier this year.

The elder of Hugh's two sons with ex-wife Kimberley Conrad officially pleaded no contest to misdemeanor corporal injury to a cohabitant or spouse.

In exchange for cutting the plea deal, one count of vandalism for damage done to Sinclair's laptop was dropped. So, what is Marston Hefner's punishment?

The 21-year-old has been sentenced to undergo a 52-week domestic violence program and was ordered to stay away from Sinclair for three years.

Sinclair, Playmate of the Year in 2011, previously told E! News that she was reluctant to file charges against her now ex-boyfriend, but that he needed help.

"I want him to admit that he did hit me more than once," she said.

Sinclair later described what went down, saying that they got into an argument "about something really silly and it kind of escalated and it became violent."

Marston's official sentencing is scheduled for June 12.
