Michael Lohan received the expected slap on the wrist and has been sentenced to two years probation for his charges involving Kate Major. Michael needs to stay away from Kate since whenever he gets near her he seems to get into trouble – Kate is at least one-half of the problem here.
The 51-year-old father of Lindsay Lohan entered a plea of no contest to four domestic violence charges in a Tampa, Florida court today but escaped a possible four-year jail sentence.
His lawyer Michael Perry told RadarOnline.com: “He will not serve any jail time.” In addition to probation, Michael – who was arrested following an altercation with former fiancee Kate Major on October 25 – will spend four months working at the Teen Challenge International programme and must undertake domestic violence classes and his lawyer hopes he will “benefit” from the sentence. Michael is already associated with this program as he told Celeb Dirty Laundry in an exclusive interview last year.
He said: “I believe he was pleased with the result, he should be. It was a good result and it will benefit him.” Kate was in court but did not speak to Michael. The lawyer added: “She told the court that she agreed to the sentence.”
Prior to attending the hearing, Kate tweeted she was hoping it would mark a “fresh start” for her. She wrote: “It’s the big B-day! Doesnt feel like it spending it in court with my ex…glad this will be a new fresh start!”
We wish Michael the best of luck and hope for his sake that he stays away from Kate Major – she is bad news.
