Mayweather due to serve 90 days in jail in Vegas
Thursday, January 5, 2012
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is due to begin serving 90 days in a county jail in Las Vegas for his pleas in a domestic violence and harassment case.
A judge last month ordered Mayweather to turn himself in Friday morning.
But Mayweather's lawyers, his promoter-manager and court officials aren't saying when or how he'll do that.
His lawyer has said she was considering asking the judge to reconsider.
The 34-year-old Mayweather admitted attacking his ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, and while two of their children watched in September 2010 at Harris' home.
Police say good behavior and work time could knock up to 30 days off Mayweather's sentence.
But jail time will limit training time for a possible May 5 date for a fight against an as-yet unnamed opponent.
