Magro must also serve 30 days of community labor where he lives, in Nevada and donate $20,000 to the Jewish Family Services of L.A., a battered women’s shelter, per the outlet.

Ronnie must attend a 52-week domestic violence program at a court-approved agency in his state. And finally, he’s also been ordered to only have “peaceful contact” with Jen Harley and obey a protective order issued in the case for the next three years.

It all comes after the reality star was arrested in October for an alleged domestic violence incident involving, Harley, the mother of his daughter Ariana.

As previously reported, the reality star was arrested on a kidnapping charge after he allegedly struck his girlfriend, wielding a knife, taking his daughter from her and then locked himself inside a home they were renting in Los Angeles.

He denied the allegations, but before the plea deal, was facing seven misdemeanor charges including, domestic violence, child endangerment, brandishing a weapon, criminal threats, and more.
