Still Losing: Ochocinco Sentenced To 30 Days In Jail After He Slaps Lawyer On The Butt In Court

June 10, 2013  |  

Poor Ocho. Just when he thought he was seeing the light of day, he finds out that light will now be coming through a small window inside a jail cell.

Earlier this morning, the former NFL star appeared in court to face a judge for his recent probation violation stemming from his domestic violence case with Evelyn Lozada. Surprisingly, things were moving in Chad’s favor, with a plea deal nearly being struck that would call for Chad to serve no jail time. But in the blink of an eye — or pat of the behind rather — the deal slipped right from Chad’s hands because he used his hand to slap his lawyer on the butt.

According to TMZ, the move happened at the last minute when the judge asked Chad if he was satisfied with his attorney. Ochocinco decided to playfully slap his lawyer’s you know what as if to say yes. And though that move brought laughter from the courtroom, the situation quickly became no laughing matter when the judge went off on Chad and asked if the proceeding was a joke to him. Chad tightened up and explained himself saying, “I had no intent to make this a joke, because my life is in shambles right now.” That’s when his life got noticeably worse and he was kicked out of the courtroom and told the plea deal was off.

When Ocho was brought back into the courtroom, he was reportedly placed in handcuffs and sentenced to 30 days in jail because of his antics. On top of that punishment, his probation has also been extended until December 21, 2013 and he has to complete an additional 25 hours of community service along with extra therapy sessions. The message? Grow the eff up!

      Well court ain’t no joke at all. By law you have to behave on every level any comments, gestures or physical contact can and will be used against in a court of law Tonyoardee.

    This is so sad that he’s undisciplined. When is he going to realize he is a target. Didn’t he see how they threw the whole law library at OJ.

  • mskane808

    what an idiot, he too cocky for his own good.

  • Dee

    What a dumb azz. It shows that he has no respect whatsoever for women nor the court of law. He should be glad it was only 30 days.

      Slapping a man on the butt shows no respect for women?

  • hollyw

    WOW. This brotha just cannot give HIMSELF a break… Over proceedings concerning domestic abuse, you decide to throw in sexually abuse, what in the WHAT?!? You know, he might actually have a case for long-term neurological damage from football, w/ his nonstop slough of asinine behavior.

    *sigh* well in the grand scheme of things, 30 days isn’t really that bad for proven assault, and it ain’t like he working, anyway, ijs…no loss of job, free rent,& 3 square meals a day!!

      ….you do know the lawyer’s a man right?

      • hollyw

        I thought about the possibility. It being a man doesn’t make it less of an inappropriate act, and at this point, I’m sure it hardly mattered for him.


    WOW.I actually like Ocho Cinco but I guess that what he gets thinking everything is a effin joke. You might get a pass everywhere else you go just because of what you are known for, but everyone knows you don’t play around in court YOU SIR, ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW.
