LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. was sentenced
Wednesday to 90 days in jail after pleading guilty to reduced battery domestic violence and harassment charges before a Las Vegas judge.

Judge Melissa Saragosa also ordered the 34-year-old Mayweather
to complete 100 hours of community service and pay a $2,500 fine.

The plea deal avoids trial on felony allegations that he hit his ex-girlfriend and threatened two of their children during an argument at her home in September 2010.

Prosecutor Lisa Luzaich told the judge Mayweather has been in trouble before and hasn't been punished.

Attorney Karen Winckler had argued that the public would benefit
more if Mayweather performs 100 hours of community service with
children.

She says she's considering an appeal.

Mayweather was told to report to jail Jan. 6.
