Brett Rogers Felony Plea Nets 60 Days In Jail And Probation


Former Strikeforce heavyweight, now Felon, Brett Rogers better keep a tight grip on that soap. Rogers was to jail time and probation for putting a beating on his wife earlier this year.

A heavyweight mixed martial artist was sentenced today to 60 days in jail for beating his wife in June at their Apple Valley home in front of their children and a neighbor.

Brett “Da Grim” Rogers, 30, of Apple Valley, pleaded guilty to felony third-degree assault in Dakota County District Court. Two felonies of domestic assault by strangulation and stalking were dismissed, as well as a gross misdemeanor charge of endangering a child.

This morning, District Judge Karen Asphaug also ordered Rogers to three years probation with several conditions, including having no contact with his wife until he completes a domestic abuse program and his probation officer approves the contact. Rogers also cannot use alcohol and drugs.

A felon who is 1-4 in his last 5 fight, I doubt any major promotions will be knocking on his door anytime soon.
