Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna is planning to enter a plea agreement that could rid him of potential assault charges.

Ozuna was arrested three months ago for allegedly assaulting his wife. While he could still face a long suspension by MLB, this resolution could rid him of potential charges and jail time, assuming he completes it.

The Braves outfielder must complete a 24-week family violence intervention program, which includes anger management courses. In addition, he will be under court supervision for six months and complete 200 hours of community service. It’s far from the sentence most originally expected considering the charges levied against him.

“Hopefully once it’s completed, I won’t see you again,” Fulton County Magistrate Judge Brandy Brooks told Ozuna, per The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Braves: Does Marcell Ozuna have a future in baseball?

For the purpose of this article, we can only hope Ozuna resolves his personal issues and changes for the better. Ozuna was arrested on May 29 for allegedly assaulting his wife at an Atlanta-area club. Originally, Ozuna’s charges includes “felony aggravated assault by strangulation”, but that was dropped in July.

The Braves have a tough decision to make with Ozuna, who signed a long-term contract just last offseason. It’s unknown if Atlanta has an out clause in the deal.

Baseball is obviously a distant second as it pertains to Ozuna getting his life back on track. For now, we’ll wait and see how the Braves respond to Ozuna’s plea, if at all.
