Conor McGregor enters plea deal, will have no jail time…or criminal record

July 26, 2018

Conor McGregor has agreed to a plea deal with the New York District Attorney and approved by the court on Thursday morning.  McGregor pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was handed just community service for the April 5th incident where he hurled a dolly at a bus of UFC athletes.

The district attorney dropped two felony counts of criminal mischief in exchange for pleading guilty of the misdemeanor.  McGregor was ordered to perform five days of community service and take anger management classes.  He will also have to pay for damages.  But, after his completion, he will not have a criminal record.  Further, it will not affect his travel.

Cian Cowley, his teammate, was given a similar sentence but will perform just three days of community service.

According to the Assistant District Attorney Janet Gleeson, McGregor has paid for the damage in the bus attack.

The two appeared Thursday morning at Kings County Criminal Court in Brooklyn, New York.

Payout Perspective:

Just to be clear, the sentence given to McGregor and Cowley would not be given to normal people especially with the viral video of McGregor not listening to security when he picked up the object to throw at the bus.  There still may be a civil lawsuit filed by Michael Chiesa over the matter.  Despite paying restitution, its likely related to the bus damage.  With this escapade over, we may see McGregor return to the Octagon by the end of the year as it seems that the two-division champ is bored.
