Hayden Panettiere's Ex Brian Hickerson Sentenced to 45 Days in Jail in Domestic Violence Case

Hayden Panettiere‘s ex-boyfriend is going to jail.

On Tuesday (April 20), Brian Hickerson was sentenced to 45 days in county jail after multiple domestic violence allegations involving the 31-year-old Nashville actress, E! News reports.

Brian pleaded no contest to two felony counts injuring a spouse/cohabitant/girlfriend/child’s parent, a spokesperson for the L.A. District Attorney’s Office shared.

Along with the jail time, he was also sentenced to four years of formal probation, must attend 52 domestic violence classes, and must pay a $500 fee. Brian has also received a five-year restraining order.

Brian must surrender himself to the jail by May 7.

Brian‘s sentencing comes after he was arrested and charged with eight counts of felony domestic violence and assault back in July 2020.

Brian was previously arrested for allegedly punching Hayden in the face in February 2020. In 2019, Brian was charged with felony domestic violence after an altercation with Hayden. That case ended up being dismissed.

Just a few weeks ago, a source close to Hayden shared a very positive update about her!
