Katt Williams Sentenced For Evading PoliceBy: Amanda Crum - April 26, 2013
Katt Williams was sentenced on Thursday for his charge of evading police back in November, when he led them on a “low-speed chase” in California on his three-wheel motorcycle.
Williams pleaded no-contest and was sentenced to 180 days in jail; however, half of that time was stayed and half was turned into community service hours, so he won’t do time behind bars.
“We are pleased that he will not be incarcerated and Mr. Williams looks forward to working with the community,” his attorney, Richard Schonfeld, said.
Williams had a very strange year in 2012, including having a lawsuit slapped on him for performing a bad show after he showed up for a comedy gig at a club and ended up trying to fight at least one of the members before storming offstage. He was also arrested several times for varying degrees of assault.
