DA reaches plea bargain with son of former Giants sluggerNikolai Bonds, son of former San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds, has reached a plea bargain with the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office, prosecutors said.
Mr. Bonds, 20, was detained following an alleged altercation with his mother at her Menlo Park home on Dec. 5, 2009. He was charged with battery, false imprisonment, vandalism, threatening an officer, and resisting arrest, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
Mr. Bonds pleaded no contest to one count of vandalism and one count of assault, which San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Joseph Gruber accepted.
Following his final sentencing on June 23, Mr. Bonds received 18 months probation, three days in county jail, fines totaling $2,130, and 32 hours of anger management counseling, Mr. Wagstaffe said.
The district attorney bargained with Mr. Bonds because the defendant's mother, Sun Bonds, had moved to the East Coast and was not responsive to the investigation, Mr. Wagstaffe added.
Barry Bonds, Nikolai Bonds' father, played for the San Francisco Giants from 1993 through 2007. Barry Bonds and Sun Bonds divorced in 1994.
