Miles Bridgeseaves of the Charlotte Hornetswas accused of an alleged assault against his partner, in front of his two young children, and child abuse, by the Los Angeles County Prosecutor’s Office (USA).

George Gascón, who is in charge of the Los Angeles County Prosecutor’s Office, assured in a statement that this type of violence “creates physical, mental and emotional trauma that has a lasting impact on survivors.”

Michelle Johnsonthe mother of Bridges’ two young children, posted multiple photos on Instagram on July 1 of what appeared to be injuries and a medical report that read “adult victim of physical abuse by male partner; Assault by strangulation, Concussion; Closed nasal bone fracture; Rib contusion; Multiple bruises; Neck muscle strain.”

Although the basketball player pleaded not guilty to the charges, the judicial process has just begun. In fact, according to AP journalist Steve Reed, the athlete risks a sentence of 11 years and 8 months in prison, according to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office.

Bridges was the leading scorer for the Hornets last season, averaging 20.2 points, 7 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game, and had been made a qualifying offer by his team prior to his arrest, giving them a chance to match any offer you receive from another team. But after these incidents, depending on the court ruling, they could change his plans with him.
