Hayden Panettiere, 31, ex-boyfriend Brian Hickerson, 32, was sentenced to 45 days in prison. In July 2020, Hickerson was arrested on eight counts, including domestic violence and assault during his relationship with the actress between May 2019 and January 2020. Panettiere reported to him the Los Angeles Police Department of various physical and psychological assaults.
After a hearing on Tuesday, he is now sentenced to a month and a half in prison. Hickerson is also prohibited from contacting Panettiere by a five-year warrant. In addition, he must attend 52 class units on domestic violence and pay a fine of 460 francs.
Hayden Panettiere wants to encourage others
Hayden Panettiere announced a while ago that she wanted to publicize her allegations to start a conversation about abusive relationships.
She said, “I am speaking the truth publicly because I hope my story gives others the strength to get the help they need and deserve. I am ready to do my part to ensure this man never hurts anyone again.”
She is grateful for the support of those around her, through which she found the courage to reclaim her voice and her life. (Live)
