On Wednesday morning in Clark County Supreme Court, WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. was sentenced by Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa to six months in jail in connection to an ongoing criminal case related to assault allegations. Mayweather was calm and quiet when sentenced.

According to the judge, the final 90 of those days will be suspended and the first 90 days of the sentence will be spent at the Clark County Correction Center in Las Vegas. The judge scheduled a surrender date for the morning of January 6th. Mayweather will also attend a long term domestic counseling program for a period of twelve months and pay a $500 fine.

As reported on Tuesday, Mayweather Jr. had agreed to plead guilty to one count of battery domestic violence and two harassment charges in a plea deal to resolve felony allegations that he battered his ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris. As part of the plea deal, Mayweather faced $3,000 in fines and between two days to 18 months in the Clark County jail.

The felony case stemmed from accusations that Mayweather hit and threatened Harris, stole her cell phone and threatened two of their children, then ages 10 and 9, during a September 2010 argument about the woman dating another man.

As part of his agreement with court officials, Mayweather agreed to plead no contest next week to misdemeanor battery and pay a $1,000 fine for poking a 21-year-old security guard in the face during a November 2010 argument about parking tickets outside the boxer's home in Las Vegas.

Prosecutor: Jail only way to get Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s attention
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/spor...attention.html (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/sports_blog/2011/12/prosecutor-incarceration-only-way-to-get-floyd-mayweathers-attention.html)

Unbeaten boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. was sentenced Wednesday to 90 days in jail after pleading no contest to reduced battery/domestic violence and harassment in a Las Vegas courtroom.

Prosecutor Lisa Luzaich told the judge Mayweather has been in trouble before and hasn't been punished.

"He just continually gets himself into trouble and he is able to get himself out of it as well. Essentially it is because he is who he is and is able to get away with everything," Luzaich said. "The only thing that's going to get this man's attention is incarceration."

Mayweather stood still in a striped olive vest and made no reaction when the judge imposed the sentence. He is scheduled to begin serving his sentence Jan. 6, a Clark County (Nev.) Court spokeswoman said.

A police spokesman said Mayweather could reduce his sentence by "several weeks" by displaying good behavior behind bars.

Judge Melissa Saragosa also ordered the 34-year-old fighter to complete 100 hours of community service and pay a $2,500 fine.

By striking a plea deal Tuesday, Mayweather avoided trial on felony allegations that he hit his ex-girlfriend and threatened two of their children during an argument at her home in September 2010. The girlfriend, Josie Harris, reportedly had upset Mayweather by telling him she was dating another man.

Attorney Karen Winckler argued that the public would benefit more if Mayweather performs 100 hours of community service with children. Winckler says she's considering an appeal.

Judge Saragosa noted that police reported Mayweather threatened to kill or make Harris “disappear,” and that their 10-year-old son ran from the house and jumped a back gate to fetch security. Mayweather had taken cellphones belonging to Harris and the two boys, she said.

"Punishment is appropriate," Saragosa said. "No matter who you are, you have consequences to your actions when they escalate to this level of violence."

The sentence keeps Mayweather positioned to pursue a late-spring fight date with Manny Pacquiao.

Negotiations to make the fight have not begun in earnest.

Mayweather has already reserved May 5 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, but Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum said Tuesday he's trying to get a 45,000-seat venue constructed on the Las Vegas Strip for a possible June fight date.

Mayweather and Pacquiao typically require eight weeks of training before they fight.

There is concern from the Pacquiao camp that Mayweather would serve a full 90 days behind bars, putting him in lockup into early April and perhaps making it impossible to make a fight date in June.

That would let Pacquiao pursue a spring date against someone like Cathedral City's unbeaten world junior-welterweight champion Timothy Bradley or a fourth bout against Juan Manuel Marquez.

"You don't need to be a rocket scientist to count days," one Pacquiao representative said, declining to be identified without permission to comment publicly on the matter.
