Kasey Kahl Sentenced: “Bachelorette” Star Avoids JailBy: Amanda Crum - May 28, 2013
Kasey Kahl, who was a contestant on “The Bachelorette” in 2010, was sentenced to three years of probation and community service for a felony assault charge stemming from a bar fight last January.
The 30-year old reality star pleaded no contest to the charges after he was accused of breaking a man’s nose outside a Fresno, California bar. He was also accused of hitting the man’s girlfriend. His attorney, Gerald Schwab, says Kahl could get the charges expunged from his record if he does his community service and complies with the terms of his sentence.
“He does a lot of charity work,” Schwab said, according to the Fresno Bee. “He is a good kid with a good heart, he just got himself in a bad situation.”
The fight allegedly began when Kahl approached a woman outside the bar and began talking to her, but after she told him to “stop talking to her” because she had a boyfriend, Kahl began hitting the man on the face. The woman said she jumped on Kahl to get him off her boyfriend and was hit in the process.
