RHOC star Shannon Beador once said that her husband David Beador’s battery charge was nothing but an “argument” that was “quickly” resolved.
In all actuality the case lasted over 3-years and David ended up in a batterer’s treatment program, according to RadarOnline.
According the report, the California’s Orange County Superior Court, charged David on March 4, 2003 with a misdemeanor of “battery committed against a spouse,” 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 condition” that he abide by a protective order, which we reported earlier this week. The order demanded he “must not annoy, harass, strike, threaten, sexually assault, batter, stalk destroy personal property of, or otherwise disturb the peace” of his wife. David was also forced to enter treatment because of this.
“Defendant is ordered to attend batterer’s treatment program and weekly counseling and therapy and show proof at pre-trial,” 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 women’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.
