Entertainment Tonight is reporting Short has been released from jail after serving just 6 days of his 30 day sentence. According to the site, the actor will resume his treatment at the Pasadena Recovery Center Outpatient Treatment program, telling ET, “I’m ready to get to work and never go back to that place. God is good.”
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former “Scandal” actor Columbus Short has been sentenced to a month in jail for violating probation in an assault case.
Short also was ordered Wednesday to spend six months in a live-in drug treatment program.
Short appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom to face allegations that he violated his probation after he tested positive in April for cocaine and marijuana use. He got six days’ credit for time he already has spent in jail.
His attorney, Ludlow B. Creary, says he expects his client will be released soon. He says Short has no comment on the court’s findings.
Short was given community service and probation after pleading no contest to felony assault for knocking a man unconscious at a family gathering in 2014.
He has acknowledged having drug and alcohol problems.
