‘Baywatch’ Star Jeremy Jackson Sentenced to Jail After Stabbing Woman
Former “Baywatch” actor Jeremy Jackson is going to jail after a 2015 stabbing involving a woman.
TMZ reports that Jackson was sentenced to five years probation and 270 days in L.A. County Jail after agreeing to a plea deal. Despite the sentence, Jackson will spend just 161 days behind bars since he was given a 109-day credit from the judge.
Along with the sentence, he has agreed to complete 52 anger management classes, attend 52 AA meetings, and stay away from drugs.
If the 36-year-old follows all the orders, his felony charge could be lowered to a misdemeanor.
Two years ago, Jackson was arrested after a woman claimed that he stabbed her in the back, arm and leg following a heated altercation at her home in Los Angeles.
Just months before the arrest, Jackson was arrested for allegedly stabbing a man, but was never charged. He argued that he was acting in self-defense.
