PHOENIX - State Sen. Scott Bundgaard has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor endangerment charge under a plea agreement in a case stemming from a February altercation with the lawmaker's former girlfriend.
The Peoria Republican entered the plea Tuesday morning, a day after attorneys said negotiations were under way.
A judge accepted the terms of the plea agreement. It provides for dismissal of a misdemeanor assault charge and for Bundgaard to enter a domestic violence diversion program.
If Bundgaard completes the diversion program, the entire case will be dismissed.
If he doesn't, the judge will impose a sentence of five days in jail and 36 months of probation.
A no contest plea does not require an admission of guilt, and Bundgaard has denied he assaulted Aubry Ballard.
