The luck of the Irish…
Conor McGregor is currently working out a deal with prosecutors in New York City that will reportedly cut down his potential felony charges from that bus-fighting incident back in April.
According to TMZ, McGregor and NYC attorneys — who initially charged the UFC fighter with one count of felony criminal mischief along with three misdemeanors for the brutal attack — are finalizing a plan to reduce that felony charge down to a fourth misdemeanor.
That’s HUGE, because a felony of any kind would have put McGregor’s status in America up in the air, and it’s likely that being convicted (or pleading guilty) to a felony would have had him permanently deported back to Ireland.
Now, not so, though, because sources say prosecutors are hammering out “the fine points” of a deal that should be finalized very soon to keep McGregor in America.
And, considering it’ll apparently now be four misdemeanors and no felonies, the likelihood of McGregor serving several years behind bars is almost nothing. Per reports, you can expect simply probation, and no jail time, for the Irish fighter.
You know how we feel about this case, but what do U think, Perezcious readers?!
Assuming this deal goes through, is Conor McGregor getting off too easily?? Let us know in the comments (below)…
