TUCSON, AZ - Former Arizona Wildcat forward Jesse Perry has entered a plea agreement in a domestic violence case that should allow him to pursue a career in the NBA.
Perry had faced three felony domestic violence charges stemming from an April 20 arrest. The victim testified that Perry repeatedly choked her during an argument.
The Arizona Daily Star reports Perry pleaded guilty last week to a misdemeanor charge of unlawful imprisonment by strangulation and the felony charges were dismissed. He was given three years' probation and ordered to pay fees and restitution.
Perry's lawyer, Michael Harwin, says his client was never in trouble before and called the plea agreement a just result.
A felony conviction could have affected the former top Wildcats scorer from freely traveling for an NBA team.
