After multiple delays and continuances, Darren Collison’s domestic violence case, stemming from a May 30 incident at his home in Granite Bay, Ca, has finally come to a conclusion in Placer County courtroom. Collison, 29, pleaded guilty Friday morning to one count of misdemeanor domestic violence, CSNCalifornia.com has learned.
According to the plea agreement, Collison received a 20-day jail sentence, which he will serve in an Alternative Sentencing Program, where he will work on community service projects overseen by Placer County. Collison is not expected to serve any actual jail time.
“Words cannot describe the feelings and regret that I have been experiencing the last few months,” Collison said in a statement. “My family and I found ourselves in such an unfamiliar situation and it has been a difficult few months. This is far from who I am as a person and not something I am proud of. I take full responsibility for my actions. I have apologized to my beautiful wife that I have known and loved since high schooI. I appreciate and am thankful for the love and understanding from my family, friends and supporters. Now it is time to put this behind us and move forward.
