RHOC star Shannon Beador once said that her husband David Beador’s battery charge was nothing but an â€œargumentâ€ that was â€œquicklyâ€ resolved.
In all actuality the case lasted over 3-years andÂ David ended up in a battererâ€™s treatment program, according to RadarOnline.
According the report, the Californiaâ€™s Orange County Superior Court, charged David on March 4, 2003 with a misdemeanor of â€œbattery committed against a spouse,â€ which according to state law, is punishable of up to a year in jail.”
David was represented by a high powered attorney and eventually he plead not guilty a month later to the charge.
David was released on bail “on the conditionâ€ that he abide by a protective order, which we reported earlier this week. The order demanded he â€œmust not annoy, harass, strike, threaten, sexually assault, batter, stalk destroy personal property of, or otherwise disturb the peaceâ€ of his wife.Â David was also forced to enter treatment because of this.
â€œDefendant is ordered to attend battererâ€™s treatment program and weekly counseling and therapy and show proof at pre-trial,â€ the documents stated on April 3, 2003.
The following month in May, David changed his plea to guilty in a deal with the prosecutors.
David was placed on three years of informal probation, and agreed to pay a domestic violence fee, give a donation to a battered womenâ€™s shelter, and complete eight hours of community service.
The records also say that David finished nine months of the batter’s treatment program by February of 2004.
In April 2006, David eventually completed probation, was able to change his plea to not guilty, and the case was dismissed.
