On Thursday, April 4, 2024, 13 On Your Side reported that an Ottawa County district judge avoided jail time for a domestic violence charge.

Bradley Knoll, the Chief Justice of the 58th District Court, was sentenced to four months probation and anger management classes for assault and battery on his wife, according to the Muskegon County Prosecutor.

The incident occurred on December 13, when Knoll was arrested and charged with the misdemeanor, according to court records. The charge carries a penalty of up to 93 days in jail and a $500 fine.

However, the Grand Haven Tribune reported that Knoll was sentenced under the Spousal Abuse Act, meaning the charge will be removed from his record if he successfully completes his probation without issue.
