CelebnSports247.com reports that a spokesperson for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office tells TMZ Sports … Avery was found guilty of the misdemeanor charge on Thursday, following a short bench trial this week.
According to the spokesperson, Avery was sentenced to time served. The judge in the case also issued full orders of protection for the victims.
Sean Avery, 42, was initially charged back in 2019 … after a businessman said the former New York Rangers center damaged his car following a dispute over a New York bike lane.
Mr. Avery, a former New York Rangers hockey player, said:
I’m not a police officer…So I didn’t really know if there was a crime committed. It’s part of being on the streets of New York City.
But just hours after Sean Avery finished testifying, a judge clarified the matter: There had been a crime committed, and he was guilty, via New York Times.
The man claimed Avery’s outburst left a small hole in his vehicle’s door, near where his 4-year-old daughter had been sitting during the incident.
Avery — who, according to the New York Post, turned down several plea deals from prosecutors — had been facing up to three months behind bars.
