In just a few hours, Chad Johnson will be a free man. Just one week after being ordered to spend 30 days behind bars for slapping his lawyer’s behind in court, Broward County Judge Kathleen McHugh agreed to let the disgraced football player out early.
HipHollywood spoke with Chad’s lawyer, Adam Swickle, who told us that Judge McHugh did what she felt was appropriate. “She had the absolute right to deny the request, but she made the right decision and set the circumstance straight,” Swickle explained.
“Johnson showed remorse for what took place in the courtroom last week, and apologized to the court. He asked to get out of jail, and to finish up with his probation which ends mid October,” Chad’s lawyer continued. “The seven days that he served of the 30 days will be all that he serves,” Swickle added.
Last week, Swickle filed a motion to have the judge reconsider her 30 day sentence.
