Sean Penn Arrives At A Plea Deal In The Unpleasant Paparazzi Case

May 13th, 2010 - 9:01 pm ICT by Pen Men At Work  

penn May 13, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Sean Penn beseeched ‘no contest’ on Wednesday to the indictment of having perpetrated vandalism. The accusation of vandalism had sprung from an unpleasant incident in the previous year with the paparazzi that involved Penn. This data has been articulated by the Associated Press.

The 49-year-old actor, Sean Penn, was awarded a punishment of three years probation. He was instructed to carry out 300 hours of community service as a component of a plea deal with the prosecutors. Penn must also submit himself to 36 hours of counseling designed to manage and control his fury. Also, Penn must remain 100 yards away from the photographer, Jordan Dawes.

The legal representative of Penn, Richard Hirsch, uttered to AP that lengthening this matter in the court of law would not have been in the interest of Sean Penn’s welfare. Stretching this matter interminably would have diverted Penn’s concentration from his benevolent and compassionate pledges, particularly his work for rehabilitation in Haiti. Hirsch mentioned that, in view of that, Penn resolved to agree to the stipulations of the punishment and move ahead.

A reimbursement inquiry is slated for July 8.

Initially, prior to the formalization of the plea deal, Penn was likely to experience 18 months in a penitentiary after prosecutors indicted him with misdemeanor battery and vandalism in February. The indictments originated from a nasty episode last October when Penn and the cameraman, Jordan Dawes, got involved in a squabble in close proximity to the Brentwood Country Mart in Los Angeles. It had been divulged that Penn had put the boot in Dawes and had pummeled Dawes on numerous occasions prior to departing from the scene.

Dawes has since launched a civil lawsuit against Penn, which continues to be in effect today.
