Brett Rogers Pleads Guilty to Third-Degree Assault, 3 Other Charges Dropped

Former Strikeforce heavy hitter, Brett Rogers has pleaded guilty to one count of third-degree assault stemming from an altercation with his wife back in June, with three other charges being dropped by the prosecution as part of his plea agreement.

Rogers has been subsequently cleared to compete on the Titan Fighting Championship 20 card on September 23rd where he’s set to face former UFC veteran, Eddie Sanchez in the co-main event of the evening.

This from The Apple Valley Patch:

“MMA fighter Brett Rogers pled guilty to one count of third-degree assault on Thursday morning stemming from a late June domestic assault incident. Three other charges in relation to the incident were dismissed as part of the plea agreement.”

“A pre-sentence investigation will be conducted in advance of a Nov. 30 sentencing hearing. Rogers remains free on $100,000 bond and could still face jail time, however Rogers’ attorney, Murad Mohammed, feels there is a good chance that his client could see a stay of imposition in any sentence given his lack of previous record and willingness to seek help.”

Rogers’ attorney commented on the deal:

“Overall, Brett and I are pleased with the outcome. I think it’s important for everyone, especially Brett’s wife and family, to know that Brett has taken ownership for everything that’s happened. It’s an unfortunate situation for the family and the end result is Brett not having a felony conviction resulting in him returning to his family and continuing to fight.”
