Torrance Superior Court Judge Eric Taylor accepted the plea, which is treated the same as a guilty plea.
Additionally, Voynov must complete a 52-session domestic violence counseling program, pay about $700 in fines, and attend eight hours of community service.
If he violates probation, he could serve up to 364 days in county jail.
He can serve his 90 day sentence in a county jail or local city jail. He must surrender to jail on July 14.
Voynov must serve half his sentence before his release, but his ultimate service time would be up to the Sheriff’s Department because of overcrowding issues. If Voynov chooses a city jail, he possibly would serve more time than at the county jail, per Larry Altman of the Daily Breeze.

All state convictions can result in deportation, but decisions on visas and travel are up to the Department of Homeland Security.Read more... Join the Conversation...
