Shia LaBeouf’s violence and petty theft case from 2020 may result in him avoiding prison time. According to TMZ, a judge has ordered the actor to attend therapy and anger management programmes. According to the article, a court ordered the actor to complete a 12-month judicial diversion programme in connection with misdemeanour violence and theft charges stemming from an incident in June 2020.
The accusations against LaBeouf may be completely dropped if the programme is completed successfully, according to the court ruling. The programme is said to include required counselling once a week as well as a 12-step recovery programme. The actor has also been advised to not be in any possession of weapons.
According to the TMZ report, the court will check in after three months to evaluate how things are doing with the judicial diversion programme. On Thursday, the actor reached court, where a judge ordered him to participate in a judicial diversion programme regarding this case.
Bad days are not over as the actor also faces another lawsuit that has been launched by his ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs, who dated him for almost a year. The singer has accused LaBeouf of physical assault as well as claiming that he purposefully infected her with an STD. After accusing LaBeouf of relentless abuse,’ his legal team has refuted all of Twigs’ claims and demanded her to pay his legal fees. The couple met on the set of Honey Boy in 2018 and started dating at the same time before splitting up in May 2019.
