L.A. Laker Jordan Hill (pictured) pleaded “no contest” to assault charges in a Houston courtroom Thursday for choking and beating his ex-girlfriend in February, according to Los Angeles Times.

The reserve power forward’s former girlfriend, Darlene Luna (pictured), who was represented by high-profile attorney Gloria Allred, took the witness stand to describe the alleged assault by Hill.

Luna sobbed uncontrollably as she provided details of the beating. She alleged that Hill hit her legs with his fists, pulled her off a couch and put her in a chokehold from behind. The incident occurred at Hill’s apartment in Houston where he played with the Rockets.  Luna also plans on filing a civil suit against Hill, according to the L.A. Times.

The two avoided eye contact while they were in the courtroom.

Hill’s “no contest” plea reduced the assault charge from a felony to a misdemeanor. The 25–year-old will have to pay a $500 fine and undergo counseling. He was also sentenced to one year probation.

The 6’10” player faced up to 10 years prison time had he been convicted of a felony offense.

Hill’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, Jr.,  told the L.A. Times that his client “… simply wanted to put this behind him to play basketball.”
