It looks like NFL running back Adrian Peterson will NOT have to worry about spending any time behind bars as he has struck up a plea agreement that will allow him to avoid jail completely.

The Minnesota Viking was originally indicted on felony charges of injuring a child after he used wooden "switch," or stick, to hit his 4-year-old son as a form of discipline, leaving him with cuts and bruises on his legs, buttocks, and testicles.

Despite some speculation that he might face possible jail time, Adrian and his legal team managed to put together a deal in which he pleaded no contest to much lesser misdemeanor charge of reckless assault.
